For millions of years, crystal balls have been used by psychics, mediums, and soothsayers as a tool for fortune telling, scrying, and clairvoyance.
Their round shape helps distribute energy equally in all directions and raises positive vibrations. This makes crystal spheres ideal for fortune telling, meditation, divination, and decoration purposes.
How are gemstone spheres made?
Spheres can be made from different types of crystals. They are formed from a massive crystal that is cut into a polyhedron, then ground into a rough sphere.
Afterwards, the sphere is placed in a polishing machine where it undergoes an extensive polishing process with the use of increasingly fine abrasives.
As a final polishing step, the sphere is buffed to give it a smooth, clean, and shiny appearance.
Other popular uses of spheres
Sending messages - This is often practiced by expert gazers when they’re in a deep meditative state. They would imagine the person they want to communicate with in the crystal ball and send them a healing message. The crystal ball is then placed on an altar so the recipient can amplify the message.
Crystal healing - Spheres are also useful in crystal healing sessions. They help unblock and activate the chakras or energy centers when you form a crystal grid with it during meditation. Spheres can also relieve pent up stress and tensions in the body. Others use 1- to 2-inch crystal balls as stress balls to ease their worry and anxiety. Choose a ball that comfortably fits in your hand. Have it ready at your desk or in your pocket.
Group harmony - Need a balanced energy or stimulate harmonious synergy within your group? Before conducting a meeting, group study, or brainstorming sessions, place a sphere in the center of a room or table to increase group harmony.The crystal helps distribute energies evenly among the group members. It is also said to induce cooperation, creativity, and compromise in the group.
Like gemstone pyramids, spheres are also used in feng shui as a beacon of peace and harmony in any environment.
In a house where arguments and disagreements often occur, a Clear Quartz sphere can be placed in the living room to ward off negative energies. You can also use a Rose Quartz sphere to bring in a gentle, loving, and nurturing energy.
In the workplace, spheres can be used to clear out chaotic energies and make the office become more conducive to productivity and efficiency. A Black Obsidian sphere is ideal for this application since it provides a grounding energy, which is great for businesses. Placing one on your desk is also said to help sharpen your focus and clear mental cobwebs.
