Smooth wall crystal singing bowls are marketed by many different names including Empyrean, Alchemy and Gemstone. I like to keep thing simple... call them what they are ...smooth walled bowls; either White or Gemstone Fusion. Why the word FUSION?
Here is a secret about Alchemy Gemstone singing bowls. Almost all of those pretty colours are just pigments and minerals to make the singing bowl look beautiful. When you grind most gemstones, they become a white powder. When you heat most gemstones, they become either clear, white or silver. So when you see that pretty purple amethyst bowl, know that the colour is not from the gemstone, but from a colour added to the bowl to make it look pretty. Our understanding is that there is very little actual gemstone in any of the gemstone singing bowls out on the market. That is why we call them Gemstone Fusion Singing Bowls.... a fusion of a tiny bit of gemstone with minerals and pigments to make very pretty bowls.
So why buy a fusion gemstone crystal singing bowl ? Buy a fusion gemstone singing bowl because it is beautiful! Buy fusion gemstone singing bowl because the smooth wall makes for a much better playing experience. Buy a fusion gemstone bowl because it makes you happy.
Here at the Sound Journey Store our goal is to break through all the marketing, myths and misinformation so that you can make an educated purchase.
These crystal singing bowls are perfect pitch, ensuring that harmonies are balanced when playing more than one bowl or playing with other instruments. Why is perfect pitch important? Playing two bowls together that are not perfect pitch can sound nice and ethereal, but not balanced and grounded. We test every bowl before shipping out to be sure it plays and sounds beautiful.
Each bowl comes with a rubber O-ring. You will need to purchase a mallet if you do not already own one.
If you are overwhelmed with trying to pick a crystal singing bowl, just give us a call. We would be happy to help you out.
What does this pitch sound like?
At the present time I do not have a video of these bowls, only the video in the next section comparing frosted to smooth wall. To hear the pitch, please check out the videos of this note in the frosted section, or call Denise and ask her to make you a video.
What is the difference between classic frosted and smooth wall crystal singing bowls?
Playing frosted crystal singing bowls with a silicone wand can help reduce the sound, but smooth walled crystal singing bowls are stunning. The exterior of the smooth wall crystal singing bowl is polished to a smooth finish. This level of perfection leads to a bowl that is easy to sing without the distraction of the secondary noise introduced by the wand when you first get the bowl singing.There is almost no sound of the wand on the rim of the bowl. Listen for yourself.

Will My Crystal Bowls Be Safe During Shipping?
Your crystal singing bowls are guaranteed to arrive safely. We have never had a bowl break on it's way to a customer. However, if it ever happens, just call us and we will send you a free replacement. We want you to be happy.
All singing bowls are shipped in either the padded bag that has been purchased, or in a protective molded foam insert and cardboard box. They are totally safe.
If you are on a tight budget, and need to decide between buying a padded bag for your crystal singing bowl or buying another instrument, we suggest that you opt for the other instrument. While we would love to sell you everything in the store, rest assured, your crystal singing bowl can be stored and travel safely in the protective molded foam insert and box that we ship it in. However, padded bags add convenience as they are easier to unpack, they take up less space and they look much more professional. Padded bags are great for those of you who plan to transport your bowls to different venues. You can stack three bowls nesting in one bag or box, providing that there is a 2" gap in size between the bowls. You can protect your nested bowls with neoprene bags or we can provide bubble wrap to wrap your bowls.
We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase.

Care For My Crystal Singing Bowls
Crystal singing bowls are very easy to care for. When they are dirty, use a toothbrush, soap and water to gently scrub your bowl clean. For best appearance, air dry your bowl (a towel will leave lint).
