Quartz Spheres and Crystal Balls
also known as globes or crystal balls, can be made from different
types of quartz, as well as from a variety of minerals. Clear quartz, amethyst, citrine, rose quartz and included
quartz, such as rutilated or tourmalinated or tourmalated quartz, make beautiful
spheres. Calcite, marble, lapis, jade, charoite and sugilite
are just a few examples of the different minerals that are made
into spheres. Even minerals that are usually thought of as gemstones
can be shaped into spheres. Examples of these are ruby, emerald,
aquamarine and tourmaline. Usually non-gem grade material is
used for these spheres, but they are still beautiful and unique.
Even some opals like sandstone opal and Oregon opal have been
made into spheres.
The round shape of spheres is considered
an asset in the metaphysical world. It is thought that a sphere gives off energy in a 360-degree
area, instead of having a very focused energy like you find coming
from the point of a crystal. This becomes very beneficial to
a room where one wants to enhance a particular energy. A
rose quartz, which is a stone that is all about love and opening
ones heart, is a nice addition to a bedroom. Some people like rose
quartz in a meeting room to help people stay heart based in their
dealings with one another. An amethyst sphere would be nice in
a meditation area. Clear quartz is useful in an office or living
room. Some therapists use lapis spheres in their offices, as
it aids in communication.
Spheres have been used in massage and during the laying on of
stones. Some people collect spheres specifically while others
just like them as art pieces or even as paper weights. Some Feng
Shui practitioners prefer the energy of natural stones to that
of the leaded glass spheres commonly used in Feng Shui.
