Zaphir Chime Crystalide is one of the most magical sounds you will hear! Not your ordinary chime! This chime is named with a neologism, but "Crystalide" does have indications of meaning. For example, the suffix "ide" indicates an organic compound derived from another, or in this case, from the word Crystalloid, which means "resembling a crystal in shape". Therefore the sound of this chime is inspired by natural crystals formed by the earth, like the crystallized ice found in freezing climates. It also represents the spring season. Great to use in sound healings, savasana, or for general relaxation.
No two chimes are the same! Colors may vary. They are really special and a beautiful addition to your home, even babies are mesmerized and calmed by the beautiful sound! Please tell me your top three favorite colors for the chime. Chime colors based on availability and may vary. Color selections not guaranteed.
You can keep these chimes outside, but best to bring them in during inclement weather/at night as they could and will varnish faster.

Each instrument has 8 metal cords of different lengths, welded with silver into a metal ring. Upon assembly, the cords are again carefully tuned to refine the interaction of tones and overtones into a continuous flow of harmonies. The proportions of the resonance-tube coincides with the 'Golden Ratio' principles of Da Vinci, thus assuring optimal sound and resonance.
Thin crushed and pressed layers of long fiber celluloid board create the perfect acoustic qualities for the warm timbre and crystalline sounds Zaphir Chimes are known for. Most of the materials used are natural, recyclable and of EEG origin / standards. The protective layers of varnish, and paint of the resonance-tube are ecological. The wooden parts are wax coated.
