Here at Crystal age we pride ourselves on beautiful, high quality crystals and I am pleased to announce our new range of unique crystal balls. We now have over fifty-one off crystal balls, each selected for its fine crystal and exclusive providence. In this post I am going to feature a couple of my personal favourites, but to browse the whole range I recommend visiting our unique crystal balls page. Crystal balls can be used in many ways and they are beautiful objects. Polished crystal balls have traditionally been used for scrying and clairvoyance. The best crystals for this are usually quartz and obsidian. They are also ideal for crystal healing and mineral collecting. One advantage of using crystal balls in healing is that a sphere radiates energy equally in all directions, enhancing its ability to affect a space or person.
Blue Apatite Crystal Ball – 5.5cm
This blue apatite crystal ball is a very arresting piece. It has a beautiful range of teal blue tones, from a deep ocean blue to soft turquoise and sky blue. There is white veining around the whole of the sphere, in a way that is both attractive and typical for this variety of apatite. Given blue apatite’s associating with communication and spiritual guidance, I think this crystal ball would be ideal for a healing or meditation space. You could use it for specific healing and meditation or simply place it in your healing space and allow its energies to fill the room.
Chevron Amethyst Crystal Ball – 4.5cm
The dramatic markings of this chevron amethyst crystal ball make it a very attractive piece. It displays excellent white chevron markings almost all the way around the circumference of the sphere. The areas of pale and dark purple crystal contrast dramatically, giving you a beautiful and very eye catching crystal ball. As one of the most powerful Third Eye stones, chevron amethyst is ideal for meditation, spiritual progression and healing work. At just £24.99, this chevron amethyst crystal ball is an affordable way to enhance your spiritual practice or just bring a little soothing contemplative energy into your life.
Rutilated Quartz Crystal Ball – 17.5cm
This rutilated quartz crystal ball is a truly remarkable piece. It contains an unprecedented concentration of silver and gold rutile and the effect is very beautiful. When you rotate this crystal ball the rutile shimmers and sparkles, creating little glimmers that shoot across the surface of the crystal. If you have any interest at all in rutilated quartz I recommend clicking on the image to see a display video of this sphere. As well as being very attractive, the concentration of rutile gives this crystal sphere excellent healing energy. Like all rutilated quartz, this sphere is ideal for combating depression. It is perfect for those wishing to align the crown and solar plexus chakras and is a wonderful addition to any crystal healing practice.
Apatite is a beautiful crystal with a bright and positive healing energy. It is great crystal to use in healing and meditation, as well as a very attractive one to have in any space. Here at Crystal Age we have an excellent range of apatite crystal, from small healing stones to beautiful jewellery.
Apatite crystal is associated with the zodiac sign of Gemini but its different varieties are each aligned with a different chakra. This crystal is believed to encourage extroverted, lively behaviour. It can reenergise the spirit and instils new motivation and drive. Apatite crystal also has an uplifting character and it is said to remedy anger, sadness and irritability; replacing them with optimism and a sense of community. On a physical healing level, apatite is believed to benefit the bones and teeth, in particular aiding the absorption of calcium necessary for healthy bones and teeth. These qualities are common to all varieties of apatite crystal but each type also has its own additional properties.

Green apatite is believed to expand the chest and lungs, improve digestion and can also aid the kidneys. Green apatite is said to give you comforting and nurturing protection around the whole body. It can also heal the heart on an emotional level, dispelling emotional pain and lifting the spirits.
