Everyone has some innate psychic talents. They might differ in degree or presentation, but this potential lies in each one of us.
Sometimes, they might manifest by surprise — if you’ve ever had a prophetic dream out of nowhere, or simply “knew” something before it happened, you’ve experienced this.
You can also encourage the development of your psychic abilities through practice, meditation, and working with crystals. There are several stones that resonate with this untapped power, and can help it reach its full potential.
Here are some of the best crystals and stones for psychic ability, divination and clairvoyance:
Amethyst is pretty much every crystal worker’s go-to stone for anything connected to meditation, spirituality, the subconscious, intuition, and psychic abilities, including clairvoyance.
This purple quartz is strongly connected to the hidden aspects of the mind, and wearing or meditating with it can help awaken those latent talents within us. If you use divinatory tools, you also may wish to keep an amethyst specimen near them.
See article: Metaphysical Properties of Amethyst.
Angelite is also called blue anhydrite, a type of anhydrous calcium sulfate. This pretty pale blue stone is tied to the energy of the angelic realm. It helps with psychic abilities by connecting us to our guardian angels and other celestial denizens.
These can offer us insight that we may not normally be able to obtain on our own, often in the form of clairaudience or clairvoyance.
It’s not a good crystal to use for jewelry, since it’s much softer than quartz, but is a beautiful addition to your meditation or divination practice.
Famous clairvoyant Edgar Cayce advocated using azurite to increase one’s psychic vibrations. This bright blue stone is also said to enhance inner wisdom. Working with it is as simple as wearing a pendant or holding the stone for up to 10 minutes at a time.
Cayce suggests not wearing or carrying azurite all of the time, as this may cause the user to lose touch with the physical plane and become ungrounded.
4. Herkimer diamond
Herkimer diamonds are a type of double-terminated quartz from Herkimer county, New York.
While they may resemble double-terminated clear stones from other areas of the world, they’re said to have a uniquely glassy luster, sharp terminations, and a powerful ability to tap into latent psychic potential and stimulate visions or clairaudience.
These stones are typically fairly small, though large specimens do exist. Wear small ones in jewelry, and hold larger crystals during meditation.
This translucent variety of cordierite is used for shamanic journeys, astral travel, and enhancing the intensity of visionary experiences. For clairvoyance, it can help the user see vivid details and obtain clear information.
It’s less a stone for psychic ability itself, and more an addition to other crystals to enhance or improve the quality of the information gleaned in this fashion.
Gem-quality iolite makes beautiful jewelry, but tumbled lower quality iolite is just as effective as a pocket or meditation stone.
Kyanite is a stone with a very high vibration, and one of the ones that some crystal workers claim never needs to be cleansed.
It’s used for channeling, divination, and enhancing various “clair” talents — including clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience.
Kyanite is also an amplifier of intention and a clearer of energy blockages, so it’s great to hold during a meditation to connect with one’s spirit guides or higher intelligence.
Wear it in jewelry (but be careful, as this stone is easily damaged) or hold it while meditating.
See article: Metaphysical Properties of Kyanite.
Labradorite is a mysterious gray feldspar with a secretive rainbow flash when the light hits it. It’s probably unsurprising that it’s considered a stone for magic and the inner workings of the mind and spirit.
This crystal can enhance all forms of latent magical and magic-adjacent abilities, including psychicism and clairvoyance. Since it helps shield the aura, it’s good at creating a safe space for the user to really dive in and explore via visionary experiences.
Polished labradorite makes beautiful jewelry, especially the variety known as “spectrolite.” Otherwise, place specimens in your home or carry them in a pocket or pouch.
See article: Metaphysical Properties of Labradorite.
8. Lapis lazuli
Lapis lazuli is another stone recommended by Edgar Cayce. This blue stone is considered an excellent tool for uncovering hidden truths (both about the world, and about oneself).
Cayce said that lapis was also useful for forging a direct line to spiritual guidance. So, like angelite, this stone may help the user connect to guides that will give them the information they need to know.
Wear this stone in jewelry, carry it on you, or hold it while meditating on a question.
See article: Metaphysical Properties of Lapis Lazuli.
Merlinite is a nickname for indigo gabbro. This stone is said to work with duality — what’s hidden and unhidden, light and dark, seen and unseen.
It’s good for peeking through the veil between the present and the future, or this world and the invisible realms. It’s also said to attract magic into the user’s life.
Carry it as a palm stone, or keep large specimens, spheres, or generators in your home.
Moonstone is associated with lunar magic, cycles, and the subconscious mind. It’s good for enhancing the user’s sensitivity to psychic messages, stimulating prophetic visions and dreams, and enhancing intuition.
Some say that its powers are at their height during a full moon. Wear it in jewelry, or meditate with it during this time.
See article: Metaphysical Properties of Moonstone.
11. Rainbow moonstone
Interestingly, this crystal isn’t a moonstone at all — it’s a kind of white labradorite. Where moonstone has a shimmery schiller, reminiscent of the glow of the moon, rainbow moonstone has a colorful labradorescent flash.
It’s said to be a good stone for general psychic development, though some crystal workers claim that it’s true strengths lie in dreamwork and clairvoyance. Use it the same way you would either labradorite or regular moonstone.
Serpentine is a greenish or brownish stone with spots or twisting markings. It’s said to help align the energy in the body to allow for an unimpeded flow, allowing us to connect our highest energy centers to our angels and spirit guides for psychic guidance.
It also strengthens psychic abilities and can provide a guiding, stabilizing influence in chaotic situations. Serpentine makes unique and beautiful grounding jewelry, and larger specimens look and feel wonderful in a home or meditation space.
Some people have their psychic talents awakened unwillingly, while others need to work a little to activate theirs. There are dozens of exercises that one can follow to help strengthen this area of the mind, like a muscle.
These crystals and stones allow you to clear and align your energy, direct your intention, and stimulate the psychic centers of the brain, awakening your sleeping prophetic powers.
