But first we should tell you something that's equally important. In truth, there is not really one type of dowsing pendulum. Any sort of pendulum which you can comfortably hold could be considered a dowsing pendulum. The assumption is that there is a type of pendulum which is best suited for dowsing. You may well discover many places selling pendulums and advertising them as being the best for a particular area of dowsing or for a particular type of dowsing.
You may even speak with dowsers who will tell you something similar, that a dowsing pendulum has to be of a certain kind.
