Crystal Bowl FAQ’s
What are the bowls made of?
Crystal singing bowls are traditionally white frosted bowls made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz and heated to about 4000 degrees in a centrifugal mold. They come in a variety of sizes, ranging from 6 to 24 inches in diameter.
The crystal bowls played on all of Ashana’s recordings are exclusively the Alchemy, Master Alchemy and Advanced Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls made by Crystal Tones™. These bowls are made of pure quartz crystal that has been infused and overlaid with precious gemstones, minerals, metals and elements. They are smaller and lighter than the traditional classic frosted crystal singing bowls and have a more penetrating, resonant ring that is rich in musical overtones. When played, these alchemical bowls help entrain us energetically to higher, more refined, vibratory frequencies. Often … and sometimes this happens literally in a matter of moments … hearing the sound of a crystal singing bowl can initiate profound shifts in well-being, relaxation, balance, awareness and expansion of consciousness.
What sizes do they come in?
Depending upon the kind of bowl, Crystal Singing Bowls can range in size from 5” – 24”. Bowls come in many different shapes but most have either round or flat bottoms, flared, and practitioner bowls with quartz crystal handles.
What do the bowls come with?
Each bowl comes with everything you need to begin playing; a mallet, O-ring, and written instructions.
