If you need further proof that you can get anything and everything on Amazon, the online megastore is now the place to go for all of your ghost-hunting necessities. And one vital part of your paranormal activity toolkit is a stone that allegedly picks up on ghosts.

It’s called the Baketan Reiseki (which translates roughly as “stone that searches for ghosts,” and it’s made by a Japanese company called SolidAlliance.

For something that — apparently — possesses such incredible powers, it’s remarkably simple. If there is a ghostly presence around, the device changes color. When there’s no unusual paranormal activity, it lights up green. When there’s an angel present, it turns blue. And if a ghost is in the vicinity, it glows red.


It also has three different operating modes: search mode, automatic search mode and barrier mode. Search mode is a manual mode that lets you check the current area and is activated by pressing a button, while automatic search mode scans the immediate environment every 10 minutes. Barrier mode goes even further — it claims to protect from spirits, although it’s not entirely clear how it does this.

If you think this is worth $75.16, you can snap up your own ghost-hunting stone on Amazon now. Whether it actually works or not is up for debate, but there are certainly some customers who swear it does.

“I literally got this as a joke assuming it was on some scheduled program response, but it isn’t,” wrote one buyer. “I live in Virginia which is steeped in war history, and so far the only time it turned red was the morning after a 3 person murder happened just a few streets down from my house. Look it up, Burke VA Oct.2019 1 woman, 2 males were killed. I ‘played’ with this for two days straight and never got that kind of response, and the first time it went to red was completely on its own, I freaked out, and when I asked my guides if something was happening dealing with the murders and did a manual scan, it went to red again. (sic)”

Another review said, “Whoa, this thing really works. My house and my car didn’t show anything other than green (detecting no spiritual presence). We took it with us to a haunted restaurant and some other known places with paranormal activity and got lots of light blue and dark blue light (benevolent energy). Brought it back home and things went back to normal (green). Haven’t come into contact with any red light (negative energy). Thankful for that! But this seems consistent and correlates to highly active places.”

If you want to try it out for yourself, you might want to pick up a copy of “Ghost-Hunting for Dummies” at the same time. Then head to the nearest haunted house.
