There is no right or wrong type of pendulum to choose. Choose one that you are drawn to, just like shopping for any other type of crystal. There's no need to worry about what the properties are for the purpose of dowsing.
Pendulums are typically used for yes or no answers, so make sure to be very clear on the question your are asking for it to be able to give you a clear answer.
Make sure to cleanse your pendulum before you attune it to yourself.
Tuning in with your pendulum
1) Hold it between your thumb first finger at the top of the chain. Make sure it is really steady and then say out loud 'show me YES' and watch which way it spins or which direction it swings.
2) Make a note
2) Stop your pendulum and once it is completely still say, 'Show me NO' and watch which way it spins or swings.
3) Make a note and you're all set to go.
4) Clear your mind and ask your question. Make sure your question is clear and see which way it swings.
Don't forget, you have attuned this pendulum to YOUR energy. If someone else was to use it that is no problem. You will just have to cleanse it and attune it again with them holding the pendulum.
It's also a good idea to regularly cleanse your pendulum.
