Black obsidian tumbled stones available to buy individually or in larger quantities. Ideal for use in alternative therapies such as crystal healing or for art and craft purposes.
Obsidian is natural volcanic glass which forms when lava cools and solidifies so rapidly that there is no time for crystals to grow. Correctly known as a mineraloid which is a rock that lacks a crystal structure, obsidian can occur with a variety of interesting inclusions or trace elements which cause many different colours and markings. A highly lustrous stone with a smooth and uniform texture, obsidian was used in ancient times as a mirror and when cut its edges can be exceptionally sharp. For thousands of years it was used to make tips of arrows and spears and also for blades and in more recent times it was used as a blade in some some surgical scalpels. Its exceptionally sharp edge achieved a cleaner and smoother cut which caused less tissue damage hence the wound healed much faster.
In crystal healing black obsidian is considered to be highly protective and a stone which shields against negativity. It can help to overcome obsessive behaviour and will bring issues to the surface whether you're ready to face them or not. It's a very powerful crystal and one which may well bring about a change in one's life or circumstances that may not be expected.
