Crystals have been used for thousands of years, long before what is called the New Age. When you hold a crystal, meditate with it, or simply place them in areas around your home.
The idea behind a crystal ball is that it’s perfectly spherical. This is in order to give off energy equally in all directions. The crystal ball uses can vary, for example: placing the crystal ball in the centre of the room ensures that each person in the room receives equal energy. If you’re planning on doing a séance then you should place the crystal ball in the centre of the table.
A crystal ball, also known as an orbuculum or crystal sphere, is a crystal or glass ball and common fortune-telling object.
It is generally associated with the performance of clairvoyance and scrying in particular.
