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 stones are 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.
Obsidian can be found in locations which have experienced rhyolitic eruptions, including Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Chile, Greece, El Salvador, Guatemala, Iceland, Italy, Kenya, New Zealand, Peru, Scotland, and the United States.
