Singing Bowls create a hauntingly, other worldly sound for use in healing, cleansing and meditation.
Dating back over 2,500 years, they have their roots in the shamanic/animistic religions of the Tibetan/Nepalese border area of the Himalayas.
It is there that metal working artisans perfected the techniques used for making these bowls, using a 12 metal alloy (silver, nickle, copper, zinc, antimony, tin, lead, cobolt, bismuth, arsenic, cadmium and iron)
This mix gives ancient bowls a quality of sound which can not be reproduced today. It is even believed that some ancient bowls included metals taken from meterorites. See singing bowls in the shop.
