Scrying Stones

For hundreds of years collections of small objects have been used as a tool by people with psychic talent to answer questions about the hidden nature of a problem or situation.  Such items as bones, shells, and nuts—left in their original state—are thrown and read.  In Obi and Diloggun divination cut cowrie shells are used for the same purpose.  Sangoma diviners from the Zulu tribe use bones and other items in a large set which is thrown using a bowl.  The Mongolians use four sheep bones known as astralaugus or knuckle bones in a system called shagai.  Each side has its own particular conformation and so creates thirty-six possible answers for each query. American hoodoo/rootworkers use small bones along with other small objects;[1] Santerians use cowrie shells or coconut pieces.[2]
