Most commonly, the Crystal Ball is used as a focus for divination, frequently involving gazing into its depths and seeking hints and answers about the future. In this it can often provide an impression of what is to come, or in some cases lead you to visions of the future. Also quite commonly, it can be applied as a tool for séances, allowing for a means to witness and communicate the dead safely. In other cases, it is used for direct knowledge-used as a focus to help you in sensing whether another's intentions are good or bad, or their words are truthful or not, and other such impressions such as these.
With all of these applications -and these barely scratch the surface of what uses you might imagine for your crystal ball-it's a small wonder that this item has become such a well known ritual tool, even among those who do not believe in their power. This is a stunning, 6" diameter crystal ball that is 60% leaded glass and 40% crystal.
