A quartz pyramid is a chime like instrument with a luxurious sustain. Smaller pyramids will have higher tones while the larger pyramids have a lower fundamental tone. What sets the pyramid apart from other quartz instruments is the built in interference achieved by having all of the quartz rods ringing out at one time. A single rod would have a pure, fundamental focused tone with a smooth sustain and gentle release. Once you add to the structure the sound of each rod is affected by the next creating a shimmering effect as the sound focus follows the phase of the vibrating rods.
The pyramid can be used like a tingsha, bell or shang. It can be used at the beginning or end of a meditation, or to clear space. It also can be paired with metal or crystal singing bowls. The shimmering multi-tonal quality of the chime calls forth attention, so that attention may be highly present and one may focus into the present moment with great intention. The shimmer multi-tonal quality can both soothe tension, as well as shake up energetic blocks.
The instrument can be held by hand, or placed on a stand. We don't find great differences with using different types of wands to activate the pyramid, and recommend just using a suede mallet as sent with the chime.
