Gemstone Spheres: meaning and symbolism
Crystal and gemstone balls have been used for divination since at least medieval times. They are a traditional
symbol of the occult and hidden wisdom, and much more. Some of their uses include:
- Decoration with a purpose
- Crystal Ball Gazing
The Sphere symbolizes wholeness
The sphere as a shape is an ancient and universal symbol that represents unity, completeness, infinity - the
whole universe. Crystal spheres are often used to increase self awareness and a powerful mind. Closely connected
to the spiritual nature of our complete self, crystal spheres help to bring out integrity, clear thinking, and
a better union of body, mind and spirit.
Whether used for crystal ball gazing (scrying), aura cleansing, meditation, rituals or as adornment to a room,
crystal and gemstone spheres radiate special energies that are created from the earth itself!

sphere will emanate protection. Bring money to your business with a malachite sphere on your desk. Increase your luck with the stock market with a black tourmaline sphere.
Crystal Ball Gazing
A Crystal Ball used for gazing should be kept wrapped in black silk. When using the Crystal Ball for gazing

Often colors are seen the Crystal Ball. Green,
blue and violet are excellent omens. Red, orange and yellow are negative omens and you must take care. Black is
unfavorable and much care must be taken until it is no longer seen.
A white brilliance is very favorable for you,
meaning your life is on the right track and will be improved. You may see movement or even visions in your Crystal
