You Learn Something New Every Day

I had never heard of such a thing as a Crystal Singing Bowl until I visited this site - Silver Sky Imports.  Apparently, there are bowls made of quartz crystal that make this really relaxing sound when you strike them, supposed to be good for meditation.  Silver Sky Imports specializes in these Singing Bowls, and they have all kinds of them.  You can choose by size, style, color, or even sound.  There's a sound file for every one, so you can hear what it sounds like before you buy it.  I listened to a couple of them, and they really do make an interesting sound.

I don't suppose you're supposed to line a bunch of them up and play a song, but wouldn't that be cool?  Then again, I never heard of these before today, so maybe Tibetan monks do just that?
