Psychometry, Is the ability to tune into the physical and emotional history of an object by touching it .It is the art of reading the aura of inanimate objects, usually by holding them .
Everything, either animate or inanimate has an aura, the more frequently an object is used, the more likely it is to have a strong aura. For instance, a wedding ring is surrounded by an electromagnetic field which contains information about what has happened to it over the years. Its aura can tell us about the people who have worn it and the significant events relating to their lives. This can be the case with anything, all types of jewellery furniture, clothes, even a bunch of keys etc.
