History | Science

Obsidian is a naturally-occurring glass formed from rapidly cooling lava. It is considered an igneous rock.
One of the first mentions of Obsidian in ancient times 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."
Obsidius was a Roman explorer who "discovered" obsidian, although it had been known and used by native African people for centuries before. However, with its rise in popularity as an ornamental stone in Rome, it gained his name. The first archaeological evidence of the use of Obsidian is from Kariandusi in modern-day Kenya, where obsidian bladelets have been found dating back as far as 700,000 BCE during the Neolithic era. Along with being valued in the Stone Age for its ability to be fractured to make these sharp blades, obsidian was polished to make early mirrors.

Metaphysical Properties

Like many dark stones, obsidian is regarded for its powerful abilities to block, absorb, and transform negative energy. However, its ancient use as a weapon lends it even stronger capabilities as a stone of protection. Obsidian cuts through the false and negative to reveal the greatest good.



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.
