Crystal Singing Bowls

Crystal crucibles belong to the family of bells, characterized by their hollow shape with more or less flared edges.
Glass bells most closely resemble crystal bowls by their tone and their material (silica).
But the fragility and low density of these instruments led to their gradual disaffection.
Thicker and larger, quartz bowls are significantly more resistant and more powerful.
They are made exclusively from Brazilian rock powder (99.9% pure silica).

The quartz bowl: an instrument in resonance with the living world.
The pure silica contained in bowls is also present in the human body (nails, skin, retina, etc.). Blood, bones and the brain also contain crystalline substances.

the bowls start to sing when they are excited by the rotation of a mallet on their edge. The fundamental sound is therefore particularly present. The speed of rotation and the amount of pressure exerted allow the intensity to be varied.

Be careful, because beyond a certain limit pressure and intensity, any crystalline instrument breaks by resonance effect.
Struck by a mallet which then plays the role of “clapper bell”, another note appears much more acute and located at a major third plus an octave of the fundamental.
The sound emanating from the crystal bowl propagates in 3D. this is a very remarkable acoustic feature because the treble is usually directional.
