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. Black obsidian is an excellent grounding stone as it connects one from the base chakra to the Earth Mother. It is great for protection against negativity and stabilising internal and external energies. It is used for “gazing’ and to produce sincerity in action and insight into the future. It can also bring creativity to all endeavours. Due to its fast acting nature, it should be used with caution as it can bring about a rush of negative emotions and unpleasantness to the surface that needs to be dealt with before peace is restored. Physically, it can help with arthritis, joint problems, cramps, and aid digestion.
