Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass which is produced when lava from a volcano, comes into contact with water and cools rapidly without crystal growth. This process produces a glassy texture in the resulting rock, with different mineral inclusions producing different varieties and colours of Obsidian. Sheen Obsidian is formed from the interesting effects of the gas bubbles that are present between the layers of the molten rock. This stone allows us to cut through to the heart of the matter and discover the underlying problem. It stimulates our psychic abilities and assists us in seeing the opportunities that are available. It is a stone commonly used for ‘gazing’ by those advanced in the shamanic and healing arts. It is a great grounding stone and can protect us against negativity. It also stimulates clarity for mental achievements, taking out confusion, anxiety and apprehension.
