There are a few primary needs of a psychic medium:
To be able to protect themselves from low energy or low vibrational Spirits as they open up their connection
To be able to increase energy around them to form a better Link with high vibrational Spirits
To be able to transfer that energy into a form that can be understood by the medium
To be able to ground and channel that energy down through them, to the Earth, for a smooth, seamless flow of information (energy)
When connecting with Spirit and opening up yourself to the universal flow of information, it’s essential that you are able to link with those in Spirit.
Crystals can help you with that process.
Spirit Guides, Angels and Deceased Loved Ones, all without physical body, all functioning in a more gaseous, free flowing electric state, communicate by manipulating the energetic molecules in the space to create a more dense form (an apparition). They use the free-flowing energy around you and them to create sensations, transfer images and transmute energy to sound vibrations in order to deliver messages and information to you.
Thus, the best thing you can do to improve Spirit’s ability to connect with you, is to amplify the energy around you.
The mineral Silica is one of the best, natural semi-conductors of energy on Earth.
Silica, in the world of crystals, is known as Quartz.
Quartz is an energy amplifier. It facilitates the transfer of one form of energy into another. It can also convert surrounding mechanical forces of energy into electrical signal, also known as information.
Quartz variety minerals are some of the best crystals for a psychic medium to own - for these reasons. Quartz increases and transfers the energy around it's structure, transmuting that energy into a signal form that is understood by it's receiver (in this case, the medium). These qualities help both you and those in Spirit communicate their messages more clearly.
Thankfully, there are many crystal varieties within the quartz family for a medium to choose from.
Pure Clear Quartz is one of the best crystals for a medium to own.
As are all quartz forms, but here are a few of my favorite varieties:
Rose quartz - energy amplification, transference and compassion for others
Amethyst - energy amplification, transference, specifically when related to the self, generally thought to amplify and open intuitive gifts
Tigers eye - energy amplification and grounding, specifically calming and clearing yourself in stronger energetic states
All agates - energy amplification and rooting, specifically for maintaining your center in high energy fields
After Quartz and energy amplification, the next thing that most psychic mediums need, is the ability to take that high energy being transferred and transmuted around them, and channel it down through their body, in a clear, centered and flowing way.
Mediums also need grounding stones that also conduct energy.
These are called conductors.
Conductors are materials that obey Ohm's law and have very low resistance. They can carry electric currents from place to place without dissipating a lot of power. While conductors are useful to mediums for this reason, they are also useful as carriers for electrical signals to travel from place to place easily.
Conducting stones help ensure that most of the signal's power reaches it's destination - in this case, the medium.
Additionally, he best conductor for a medium is one that is has both high density and hardness - for the grounding element. When you have lots of energy swirling around you, it can really help to have a dense, hard mineral to help you anchor more strongly down to the earth.
Iron oxides are energy conductors with both high density and high hardness, meaning they’re strong stones that won’t easily break or dent.
Hematite is an iron oxide.
Hematite is known to metaphysically provide protection, grounding and stimulate the mind.
It is also known to stimulate learning and absorption of information to those working in the complex sciences fields. And, it is also known to the be perfect stone to help mediums channel high vibrational energy down through their body in a fluid, seamless way.
Hematite is the companion crystal to pure clear quartz and an amazing stone for all mediums to own.
As are all varieties of hematite including:
Working with quartz varieties and hematite will help you amplify and transmute the energy around you, ground that energy down through you to the earth, to provide you with a better more seamless link to those in Spirit.
To best work with these crystals, begin by placing them in key areas of your home or incorporating them into your meditations.
I hope this helps!

**Other high conducting minerals would include gold, silver, aluminum, and copper. These stones are also great for mediums, but can be cost prohibitive to obtain in larger amounts.
