The earliest recorded use of crystals as divination tools dates back to the Celtic Druids of Gaulle, Britain, and Ireland. According to Northcote W. Thomas’s 1905 book, crystal gazing was commonly practiced by the Pawnee, the Iroquois, the Incas, the Egyptians, the Persians, the Chinese, and the people of Yucatan. People often associate a gypsy reading crystal ball as a symbol of mystical power. A psychic sees different images when looking at the crystal ball. These images bring information about situations and guidance for resolving problems. These can be in the form of flashes, symbols or vague feelings.
