Nothing is credited with the magical power of divination more than the humble crystal ball. The image of a fortune telling gypsy gazing into the ball and foretelling your future is only one aspect of this remarkably symbolic item. It is mentioned in the book of revelations and referred to in the legend of King Arthur, who sought out the advice and prophecies of Merlin the Magician via his crystal ball.
Prominent in the middle ages, Scryers (fortune tellers) revered their crystal balls, often passing them on to their apprentices. A tool for reaching and communicating with the divine, indeed crystals have always been used in communications just as they are today in radios, telephones and computers.
It's thought that crystal balls became important tools because of their inherent characteristics of transparency and symmetry. Additionally it is claimed the energetic fields of crystals and gemstones influence what the scryer sees on a very subtle and often esoteric level.
These items come beautifully packed in a foam filled presentation box to minimise the chance damage and to make a nice presentation as a gift. They are supplied with a crystal stand, so you can display them on a LED light box for more drama.

Crystal Balls are tricky things to make and are made from high-quality optical glass. Because the ball must be flawless, many have to be discarded after production. The larger the ball the more likely a flaw can develop, hence the larger sizes are disproportionately more expensive.
Warning! It may seem self-evident but it is worth noting that because of the optical nature of crystal balls, if left in direct sunlight there is a slight possibility of a fire hazard. For this reason please take care when displaying your crystal ball, especially near a window.
