Advantages Of The Singing Bowl.
A singing bowl is a bell made from an alloy of copper and tin and can sustain a musical note when struck. Traditionally singing bowls were made from an alloy of materials associated with a heavenly body and most of the time there were seven metals. The commonly mentioned alloys were, copper, mercury, gold, silver, iron, tin, and lead. Singing bowls are also said to contain meteoritic iron. The results of the measuring apparatus used during the analysis of ancient sing bowls found show that although there were traces of lead, zinc, copper, and silver, there were no traces of mercury and gold found .
When making singing bowls, the molten metal is hammered by hand. Modern singing bowls are made by sand cast followed by machine-lathing although they can also be made by hand hammering. When finishing the singing bowls, they can be decorated by a message of goodwill or motifs or rings, stars, leaves or dots.
