Seers have used stones and crystals to foretell future events. It’s called lithomancy. The legend has it that Helenus used this ritual to predict the fall of Troy.  Some crystals can stimulate your psychic abilities and awareness. What are the best crystals for divination? Can you use crystals for healing and astral projection? How can you use them? 

The best crystals for divination are apatite, iolite, azurite, sodalite, and amethyst. Some are great for clairvoyance, intuition, astral projection, spirit communication, or protection. You can use them in crystal grids, energy rituals, and physical healing.

Here’s how to use specific crystals and methods to use them for divination. 

Amethyst Pendulum Crystals for Healing and Divination

Crystal pendulums are devices for transcribing questions about the universe’s past, present, or future. Because amethyst is a higher chakra crystal, it can connect your crown chakra to the soul star or earth star chakras (minor chakras outside the body). 

Black Obsidian Mirror for Scrying

Scrying is the technique of peeking into other realms than the living. You can do so expertly with age-old black obsidian mirrors. 

To do so, stare into the mirror at eye level on a new moon and meditate on your purpose. The scrying mirror will show your spiritual destiny and enhance your psychic powers. 

Fun Fact: The upcoming supermoon night in August is the last of the year and perfect for observing the entire astral plane. 

Apatite Crystals for Intuition

Apatite is one of the sacred crystals used on altars by shamans and healers. It invokes healing energies from your throat, crown, and third eye chakras. 

Use apatite if you’re ready to awaken your psychic powers of intuition. This is the stone that connects your consciousness to the higher realms. 

Iolite for Clairvoyance

Do you know about the power of clairvoyance and clairvision? They’re abilities to see things before they occur. Iolite is the best crystal for helping you with clairvoyance. It works by stimulating your third eye and crown to bring out your dormant divination skills. 

Azurite crystals in a Bottle for Divination

A third-eye chakra crystal, azurite is often used for making gem elixirs and infusions for physical healing and energy readings. 

Soaking azurite crystals in a water bottle is excellent for making an elixir. You can consume it before doing a divination ritual like crystal gazing or reading tarot cards. It gives you foresight, intuition, and clairvoyance. 

Herkimer Diamond Crystals for Divination

Are you feeling lost emotionally or spiritually? Connecting with a crown chakra crystal helps you gain spiritual awareness. It’s empowered by the power and strength of the Greek Gorgon Medusa. You can use serpentine to find guidance from spirits and Gods from the other realms.

Labradorite is considered a brain stimulant and is one of the best crystals for intuition and fortune-telling. Powers of the throat and third-eye chakras activate it. Moreover, a labradorite divination crystal ball can show you the past too. 

In A Nutshell 

Divination might seem like a New Age concept, but sages, witches, and seers have used crystals for centuries to gain knowledge about the unknown. You can find it in Paganism, Witchcraft, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. 

Only now do we know more about their metaphysical healing properties. 

Crystals are powerhouses of energies born inside the earth. But they also draw energies from natural elements like earth, sun, moon, death, birth, air, fire, water, wind, and sky to set intentions. 

You can use them to enhance your psychic powers like intuition, clairvision, clairvoyance, spirit communication, protection, and energy readings. Alternatively, they’re great for bringing luck, success, wisdom, power, and strength. 

For instance, amethyst dowsing pendants are great for clairvision, while iolite is a good option for spirit communication.

So, what crystal will you use for divination?
