I've done water scrying.  It gives much the same results as using a
crystal ball.  If you think you might be interested in crystal gazing,
try water scrying first to see if you have an affinity for it -- it's a
lot cheaper than buying a crystal!

Use a bowl of plain glass or white china (plain white on the inside --
it can have decoration on the outside, since you won't be looking at
that).  Fill it with pure water and place it on the table in front of
you, then sit quietly and look deeply into the water.  If you have an
affinity for scrying, you will eventually find yourself looking
"through" the water and seeing figures or symbols.  Keep the environment
quiet and calm.  Some prefer to put a cloth on the table (black, white,
blue, or purple) and a lot of people like to have a candle burning

Decorative crystal balls are easy to find, but for divinatory purposes
the ball should be quite clear -- no facets, no bubbles -- and these are
very hard to find!  I have been looking for such a ball on and off for
about 25 years, and only a few months ago my father found one and sent
it to me as a birthday present.  (I haven't used it yet.)  Luckily,
there's no need for the ball to be very large -- a few inches in
diameter will do fine.

I would think a polished stone like the one you describe would also work
well, especially if the stone is plain in colour and is polished so much
that you can look "into" it or "beneath the surface".
