CRYSTAL BALLS

 

 

A crystal ball is a sphere made from quartz crystal or glass, most commonly. The sphere is supposed to

project images of the future to a fortune teller or diviner in a process known as scrying.

 

WHERE DOES THE CRYSTAL BALL COME FROM?

 

Crystal balls are man made from crystals mined in many countries, from Brazil to India.
There is a variety of crystal balls on the market - clear quartz, smoky quartz, black obsidian, rose quartz, citrine and amethyst, whilst clear quartz is an overall healing crystal that can be charged and used to help accomplish a variety of goals.


The word “Crystal” is Greek and means ‘frozen water’ or ‘clear ice’ which as early as the 4th century B.C. is what the Greeks believed clear crystal to be. It was later called quartz or rock crystal. For gazing purposes, quartz crystal, glass, mirrors and water have been used for thousands of years to foretell future events and gain mystic insights. You do not have to use quartz crystal and glass spheres are suitable for gazing. However, many believe quartz crystal to be like a magnet for psychic energies and influences and this is why most mediums and clairvoyants prefer to use quartz crystal balls.


Basically there are four types commonly used. One is the low cost solid glass gazing ball. These are fine as long as they are free from bubbles and the distortion level is tolerable. The second type is made from ‘lead’ crystal or a mixture of this and glass. These are fine as long as they too are bubble and distortion free and are not darkly tinted. The third type is the reconstituted quartz crystal balls. For most, these are the best option as the cost is low while still consisting of pure quartz. Reconstituted means it is pure quartz that is ground, heated and then reformed into a sphere shape. The fourth type is the pure quartz spheres. These are much more expensive and never completely clear. They contain (beautiful) inclusions that give it that ‘ice’ look mentioned by the Greeks. Some people love these for gazing as they are pure quartz in its natural form. Others don’t like the inclusions for gazing and prefer a completely clear sphere.

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THE CRYSTAL BALL?

 

The crystal ball has the energy of harmony and perfection owing to its spherical shape - considered the superior shape since ancient times - as well as its quartz crystal properties. A high quality, clear crystal ball will anchor the energy or light in a very harmonious, smooth and constant motion.

 
A liquid quality of the most subtle healing energy can be brought by a crystal ball to any space, be it home, office or garden. Its energy will calm and neutralize many negative emotions, while putting the mind to a better use - from worries about the future to envisioning a better one.

Humans have longed for an ability to see into the future for centuries. The art of divination has been practiced for thousands of years, and at one point people placed a high value on individuals who could make reliable prophecies. Crystals were among the many objects said to focus the concentration of the user, increasing his or her magical power and opening the doors of divination. Many of the beliefs related to crystal balls were associated with religions, and the rise of beliefs such as those associated with Christianity led to a decline in the serious use of crystal balls.

 

The crystal ball is shrouded with veils of occult energy and power. The most common visual association with the crystal ball is the image of a psychic reader gazing into the crystal ball while their bewildered client uncomfortably waits for info. Maybe your mind conveys images of powerful ancient oracles with majestic clear quartz crystal balls in front of them, waiting in silence for the unfoldment of mystery. Or, maybe a medieval alchemist is peering through the layers of your mind? You can see captivating images of his laboratory with timeworn manuscripts layered on a massive oak table; crackling, half lit  candles and crystal balls of various sizes adorning the dusty shelves.

Whatever visual associations one might have related to a crystal ball, the overall understanding is similar - a crystal ball can help see the future or access the past. Divination, or seeking insights from supernatural sources, has been practiced worldwide since ancient times through several methods. Despite religious persecution and scientific questioning, many forms of divination have survived through the centuries. They remain popular as tools for determining the future, and as spiritual resources.
