Bone Dice of Divination | Psychic Magic Dice Dice have been used for divination and predictions for thousands of years. Long before tarot cards, astrology, rune stones, etc, dice were cast to gain an insight into the future and the unknown. The term for divination by casting dice, or small objects as lots, is cleromancy. African witch doctors of certain tribes use dice for this purpose, although their dice are not the standard ones we use.


These dice are handmade from cow bone and are made the way dice were made for centuries before industrialization made all such items identical. Dice vary slightly in size and finish rolling true to history, and are a wonderful accessory for any gamer or reenactor!

The listing is for 2 dies, and shipping is combined for those who order many.

Dice size depends on the thickness of the bones they are made from but tends to be around three-eighths to half an inch square.


Astragalomancy, which is a form of Cleromancy, is divination by use of dice. It is an ancient form of divination and is still used by many when seeking answers to the unknown.


One of the most common forms of Dice Divination used today is accomplished by using three dice.

The diviner will either draw out a circle, roughly eight inches or so, on a piece of paper or on the ground. Some diviners have a simple mat which they use for this that will have the circle pre-drawn. The question is posed and the dice are cast.


To determine the meaning of the reading the diviner will first examine if any dice have fallen outside of the circle.


1 dice outside - Difficulties lie ahead

2 dice outside- Arguments and Quarrels are likely

3 dice outside- A sign of luck and success (no reading needed)

The dice that land within the circle are totaled up and their sum indicates the message.

0,1,2 - No answer available. Ask another day
