The substance used for the bowls is a kind of sand, found in several places in the world, called "silica sand" that is pure quartz in nature. The bowls are made of silicon quartz.
The sand is dropped into a centrifugal force spinning mold, and at the proper instant, in the center of that mold, there is an electric arc torch that is ignited to several thousand degrees centigrade.
It integrates the individual particles of sand into an amorphous unified whole, which goes from being crystalline in nature to being amorphous - or glass - in nature.
Some bowls are clear. Some are frosted. Bowls can be created that will play to a certain frequency.
Clear bowls are lighter, more expensive and play best when held in the hand.
Crystal bowl music can be programmed. Quartz crystal as a holographic light template is able to hold, transmit, and receive thought forms and is fundamental to the memory "mother boards" of all computers.
Crystal singing bowls range in diameter from 5 1/2 inches - 24 inches.
Prices can vary from $150 and up.
Crystal bowls are accompanied by a wooden stick that is covered at the end with suade. The stick is moved around the crystal bowl in a circular fashion to produce different tones. The suade ens touches the bowl. It takes practice to learn how to hold the stick and move it to get the correct resonance.
Crystal bowls usually rest on a rubber "O Ring" base. As you move the stick around the perimeter of the bowl it creates a harmonic tone that becomes stronger as you go around each time. The bowl quickly appears to be singing.
A particular size of bowl may be available in more than one note or tone. This varies with weight, wall height, and wall thickness.
Crystal bowls may be used with Tuning Forks
How The Bowls Work On The Human Body
Crystal bowls create a very pure wave form a sine wave form. This pure sine wave form carries through physical objects quite well. The human body has quite a lot of resonation potentials within it.
One reason the pure tones vibrate our body is that it has a natural affinity to quartz. The human body is composed of many crystallite substances, the bones, blood and DNA are crystalline in structure as well as the liquid crystal-colloidal structure of the brain. Even on a molecular level, our cells contain silica, which balances our electromagnetic energies, and this is the same formula as natural quartz crystal.
When you're working with crystals and sound, such as with the bowls, there is a resonation - a harmonization - an integration process that goes on between the external and internal vibration.
The physical properties of the crystal bowls create different tones which resonate with our subtle bodies and frequency signatures. The tones awaken cellular memories and heal on different levels.

The pure tone of crystal bowls produces a vibrational sound field which resonates the light body chakra and corresponding physical area. A series of pure crystal tone therapy facilitates the rebalancing of each receiver back into an elevated level of etheric radiance.
Clear quartz contains the full spectrum of light that is related to the seven energy centers (chakras) and thus heals the listener by bringing pure light through sound as specific color back into the human aura. The effect is multiplied as the crystal bowls are played.
Crystal acts as an oscillator, magnifying, and transmitting pure tone. This is why pure silicon crystal is used in all of our most advanced telecommunication systems.
Like a powerful radio transmitter, the crystal bowls transmit energy into the atmosphere, filling a person's aura with vibrational radiance which translates into the seven main colors of the rainbow.
Through the pure crystal tones as the sound effects brain wave activity one can travel into an altered state of consciousness .
As different parts of the brain are affected, it is probable that they release different hormones and neuro-chemicals which can suppress pain, strengthen willpower in one's creative talents and overcome addictions.
This was found that among the wave patterns of different singing bowls there is a measurable wave pattern which is equivalent to the alpha waves produced by the brain.
Quartz crystal music holds the vibration of white light which ultimately refracts into the rainbow and acts directly on our chakra's when played. It has the power to bring about a positive shift in our consciousness and as our awareness expands, we crow close to our original selves and start to reflect the highest radiance in our physical form.
Crystal is able to maintain the balance of electromagnetic energies between the north and south poles. It is extremely accurate and consequently the foundation of timekeeping systems in all our contemporary watches is quartz crystal. The same electromagnetic field exists within all life forms.
Clear quartz integrates the balance our own electromagnetic energies.
Uses For Crystal Bowls
Cleasing the energies of a room as one would use sage.
Vibrational medicine is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterised by blockage in the channels on some level, either in nadis, arteries, veins, nerves.
When there is a blockage, the organ in question stops vibrating at a healthy frequency and thus it results in some kind of illness.
Through sound and light one can break up, dissolve and release these blockages that initiate in our licit or etheric body.
Ultra sound has been used medically for almost two decades as a diagnostic tool by pediatricians while the baby is in the very early stages of fetal development and more recently ultrasound is being used to cleanse clogged arteries.
Ultrasound works on the same principle of light equals sound and tone equals radiance manifesting in form.
Crystal bowl music emits a pure holographic template of radiant light that corresponds to the octave of sound within our etheric body. Since sound can be translated into color, the body may be seen visible frequency that produces an auric color field which reflects emotional states of consciousness and thus the physiological status.
Kirlian photography has already verified this. The visual spectrum has therefore the same wave frequency as the auditory spectrum. There are seven musical notes that correspond to the seven colors of the rainbow and these are related to the seven main chakras, which in turn correspond to different areas of the endocrine gland system.
Many cultures recognise the importance of music and sound as a healing power.
In the ancient civilizations of India, the Orient, Africa, Europe and among the Aboriginals and American lndians, the practice of using sound to heal and achieve balance from within has existed for thousands of years.
The Tibetans still use bells, chimes, bowls, and chanting as the foundation of their spiritual practice.
In Bali, Indonesia, the echoing gamelang, gong, and drum are used in ceremonies to uplift and send messages.
The Australian Aboriginals and Native American shamanists use vocal toning and repetitive sound vibration with instruments created from nature in sacred ceremony to adjust any imbalance of the spirit, emotions or physical being.
The Priests of ancient Egypt knew how to use vowel sounds to resonate their energy centers or chakras. There is a direct link between different parts of the body and specific sounds. Such a technique appears extremely old, yet healing through sound goes back even further-at least as far back as Atlantis where the power of sound was combined with the power of crystal.
At the present time the Hopi American Indian prophecy is being fulfilled with the "Coming of the Rainbow People", through the keepers of the crystal bowls. This ancient wisdom has emerged to heal and uplift the consciousness of the universe through pure crystal tone.
Prophet Edgar Cayce, predicted pure tones will be used for healing before the end of this century".
Nostradamus foretold the healing of cancer through pure tone by 1998.
Crystal bowl music is a form of vibrational medicine which validates that everything in the universe is in a state of vibration and the frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance.
The chakras, bones, and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ or part of the body is vibrating out of tune or nonharmoniously, it is called "dis-ease" or disease. A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell, each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being.
