About the mineral
Obsidian

Obsidian is a natural volcanic glass, formed by molten lava coming in contact with water. Often the lava pours into a lake or ocean and is cooled quickly. Iron and magnesium give the obsidian a dark green to black color.

HISTORY

Obsidian has long been regarded as a magical portal of prophesy. The ancient Greeks gazed into scrying mirrors and obsidian crystal balls have been used for thousands of years. Obsidians were used in the Stone Age to form rudimentary mirrors, tools, arrowheads, jewelry and ceremonial artifacts.
