Black obsidian is a gentle grounding stone that heals tears and holes in the auric field. Obsidian reminds you of your inner strength and your latent fire. Feeling like you’ve lost the spring in your step? Looking to ramp up your energy cycles? Need a reminder of how beautiful and powerful you are, and that you are capable of accomplishing anything? Black obsidian can help.
Because obsidian is highly viscous and polymerized, atomic diffusion is impossible as is the possibility for crystal growth. The obsidian stone is fairly hard at an MOHS 6, and very brittle. So it is not uncommon to find it with fractures or sharp edges. In fact, obsidian has been used historically as a tool for cutting and piercing, made into arrowheads and blades during the Stone Age and used experimentally in the recent past for surgical scalpels. In fact, obsidian plays an important role in Game of Thrones where it’s known as Dragon Glass.
In ancient Mexican culture this stone was called Itzi, literally the God of stone, as it was used to make weapons for war as well as cutting tools for everyday use. Polished Black Obsidian was used as “mirrors” for scrying purposes; their way of prophesizing the future. Black Obsidian honors Mexico's sacred history.

Place yours on your altar to remind you that you are always in oneness with those who have already departed their Earthly home, and passed on to the other side. Wear them when you need them with you.

Star is a beloved friend of mine who was stabbed to death in front of her 8 year old son by his father, her estranged husband. This was shortly after she was denied a restraining order when she told the court she was in fear for her life and for the life of her child.
100% of profits from this collection will be given directly to her son when he turns 18. This is Star's way of making sure he doesn't have to make it completely on his own, without the guiding light and financial support of his mamasaurus.
