History | Science

Obsidian is a naturally-occurring glass formed from rapidly cooling lava. It is considered an igneous rock. Mahogany Obsidian gets its name due to its resemblance to mahogany wood, with its distinct brown- dark red coloring that comes from inclusions of mineral impurities of iron and manganese.
Obsidian, including Mahogany Obsidian, has been important in the history of humanity since ancient times. One of the first mentions of Obsidian is in the writings of Pliny the Elder who wrote in his 77AD Naturalis Historia, "... among the various forms of glass we may reckon Obsidian glass, a substance very similar to the stone found by Obsidius in Ethiopia." and Obsidian bracelets have been found in Kenya dating back as far as 700,000 BCE (during the Neolithic era).

Metaphysical Properties

Mahogany Obsidian shares the protective and negative-energy-transmuting powers of regular Obsidian, with the addition of properties that tend to come with red stones, such as sensuality, strength, and passion. It is particularly wonderful for times when we're faced with opportunities that require us to get out of our own way. It transmutes the negative energy of self-doubt and imposter syndrome and helps to release blocks in order for our creativity and power to move us forward.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
