is easy to find and one of the most common crystals for psychic development. It ranges in colour from pale lavender through to deep purple. It can easily be found as clusters, tumblestones, ornaments and jewellery. Amethyst as a high spiritual vibration and a protective quality, this is a good combination for psychic development work. Amethyst encourages deep meditation and higher states of awareness. It also helps with:

  • mental control
  • focus
  • enhancing your intuition
  • gaining spiritual insight and wisdom.
  • Amethyst activates the 3rd eye chakra which is responsible for may aspects of psychic development.
Clear Quartz

is very easy to lay your hands on and reasonably priced. It amplifies energy which is one of the main reasons it is highly recommended crystals for psychic development. What does this mean? Well, if you want to increase your ability to ‘hear’ , ‘see ‘ or’ know’ psychic messages, you need to to think of yourself as a receiver, much like a mast or satellite dish. The messages are coming to you, but you may not be tuned in to them, or cannot hear them clearly. Clear quartz can amplify their energy making them ‘louder’ for you and more easily heard. Clear quartz also helps to align you with your spiritual purpose.


is pale blue and sparkly. It is a truly peaceful stone, connected with the angelic realms. It has an harmonious energy, which calms and sharpens the mind. It’s great for beginners or those who have not done any psychic development work for a while. It is said to be able to jump-start your abilities and stimulate clairvoyance. It teaches trust and faith in the the divine, or the bigger picture – that everything has meaning, so helps to develop understanding and patience on your psychic development journey.


is a mottled mid to dark blue with white veins. It has a gentle energy that helps you to keep a logical mind while also encouraging your intuition and spiritual perception – an excellent combination for psychic development. Sodalite deepens meditation and stimulate the 3rd eye chakra. It’s a good stone for a psychic development group or circle as it enhances trust, companionship, and harmony. Blue is the colour of communication so it makes sense to use while trying to encourage psychic communication.

Tigers Eye

is typically a dark brown and yellow-gold stripey stone that when polished to a tumblestone always reminds me of a humbug. There are red and blue tigers eye crystals and they have additional properties. Similar to amethyst, tigers eye stimulated the 3rd eye chakra but also has protective qualities. It brings out integrity – essential when passing messages to others in your psychic development work. Tigers eye also helps you to recognise your own talents, abilities, and also weaknesses or flaws (so you can improve on them). You will find more on tigers eye in this article.
