Traditionally used in divination and scrying, crystal balls have become iconic pop culture symbols, associated for better or for worse with fortunetellers and magic. As a part of a practice, gazing into these polished stones can yield insight into various spheres of human knowledge and activity, and they can serve as good occasions for reflection and introspection.
Lapis lazuli has been prized from ancient times onwards for its brilliant blue colour, and it especially well represented in Ancient Egyptian artwork. It has also been used to produce the beautiful and expensive pigment ultramarine, which became popular during the Renaissance and was still used by Vermeer centuries later.
In crystal healing philosophy, lapis lazuli is prized for its deep connection to the intellect and to inner truth. It is believed to enhance memory as well as intellectual abilities, and to promote acceptance and understanding.
Please understand that colors and textures may vary according to natural variations in the stone, and each crystal ball is different and unique.
