Versatility of obsidian
Obsidian is a natural glass that is formed when viscous lava cools quickly and contains little water. It is typically black in color with a glassy sheen. Various inclusions allow obsidian to take on other colors or form patterns. The most famous examples of this are snowflake obsidian, mahogany obsidian or silver obsidian. But it can also lead to the beautiful lamellae and spider web obsidian.
Due to its glass-like structure and cleavage in sharp edges, obsidian was already a popular rock for the manufacture of arrowheads and sharp tools in ancient times. Utensils made of obsidian have been found on all continents. Ornaments and ornamental objects have also been found in the ancient Aztecs and the ancient Greeks were the first to make obsidian mirrors.
Obsidian is a grounding stone. It keeps you grounded and offers a balance between spirituality and physical Earth reality. Carry obsidian with you for a continuous steam of earth energy. Obsidian helps with feelings of loneliness and takes you out of isolation. It allows you to see and accept the dark sides of yourself so that they no longer have to affect daily actions.
