This lovely Decorative Brass Altar Bell has a scalloped design and a slender handle. It has a nice clear tone as well. Bells and chimes are common tools used in spiritual ceremonies as well as in space clearing. It’s a common belief that the sound of a bell ringing will send cleansing vibrations through the air. These vibrations can clear stagnant and negative energies from an area. Bells are also commonly used to signify the beginning and ending of a ritual or meditation.
