Some diviners use crystal balls.

In the Chrestomanci series, "Diviner" is one of the classifications of magic-user recognised in World 12A of the Related Worlds. It is a specialty classification, and isn't part of the grading scale that includes "enchanter" and "witch".

A Diviner uses magic to find things out - where a person is currently living, for instance, or what is stopping a spell from working. Some diviners use crystal balls.

Dr Pawson is the most eminent Diviner in England; Christopher Chant is sent to him in The Lives of Christopher Chant so that he can find out why Christopher can't do magic.
