50mm crystal ball with stand.
A crystal ball or glass ball is believed to aid in the performance of clairvoyance. The process of seeing is known as scrying. Images are claimed to be seen and as interpreted as meaningful. The meaning and interpretation of each reading is influenced by the belief of the reader and recipient.
Nothing is credited with the magical power of divination more than the humble Crystal Ball. The picture of the fortune telling gypsy gazing in to the ball and foretelling your future is only one aspect of this pure symbolic item. It is mentioned in the Book of Revelations and referred to in the legend of King Arthur, who sought out the advice and prophecies of Merlin the Magician via his crystal ball.
Prominent in the middle ages, Scryers (fortune tellers) revered their crystal balls, often passing them on to their apprentices. A tool for reaching and communicating with the divine, crystals have always been used in communications. Crystal balls have inherent characteristics of transparency and symmetry. Additionally it is claimed the energetic fields of crystals and gemstones influence what the scryer sees on a very subtle and often esoteric level.
Warning! It may seem self-evident but it is worth noting that because of the optical nature of crystal balls, if left in direct sunlight there may be a fire hazard.
