Black Obsidian’s energy creates a protective shield that helps one remain centred when faced with negativity. It assists in recognising where one is holding negativity and helps uncover unconscious thoughts and patterns that inhibit one’s spiritual and personal growth.
History and Uses:
Black Obsidian derives it name from an ancient Roman explorer called Obsius who was given a black glass sphere from a volcano by an Ethiopian woman called Xenia. It is also called the “wizard stone” because it has been used since ancient times in many magical practices. Polished Obsidian mirrors were used for scrying and Nostradamus is reputed to have used a Black Obsidian sphere for scrying. It is an opaque volcanic glass that can be black, brown grey or green, the translucent variety from Arizona is referred to as Apache Tears. Black Obsidian has been used since Paleolithic times for making tools and weapons because it holds a sharp edge. It has even been used as the mythical “dragon glass” in today’s HBO series Game of Thrones!
Obsidian is a glassy, silica rich rock formed from lava with a hardness of 5 to 5.5. It is an amorphous stone meaning that its structure contains no regular geometric pattern. Obsidian is found in South America, Japan, Mexico, Afghanistan, and parts of the United States.
