I know you may automatically think of a gypsy-type psychic with her crystal ball in a dark room. However, not everyone who uses a crystal ball is a gypsy or psychic. Some just like to appreciate its beauty as a display piece in the home or garden. Some prefer them to just diffuse their energy into a space. Others, however, do like to use them for divination.

Not too long ago, a very good customer of mine asked if the manmade lead crystal balls were any less effective for divination than a natural clear quartz crystal ball. As far as the leaded crystal balls go, they aren’t “bad”, just not nearly as powerful as a pure quartz crystal ball created by the Earth. However, a pure quartz crystal ball is usually quite expensive, but well worth the price if put to good use and used properly. They’re priceless and very powerful objects, unmatched by a leaded crystal ball.
