Obsidian is essentially volcanic glass. It ranges in color from an opaque black, to green, brown, mahogany, black with rainbow colors, red/black, black with snowflake patterns, black with a  golden sheen and a translucent black (Apache Tears).  Obsidian is a powerful grounding stone that provides an instant connection from the Root Chakra deep into the core of the Earth. It is not to be used lightly, as Obsidian will unleash undesirable truths and negative energy very quickly to the surface; however, when used skillfully, Obsidian releases these negative patterns/past emotional traumas so that true soul healing can begin.

Obsidian protects the wearer from hostility, negativity, psychic ‘vampires’ and spiritual entities that do not belong.  It offers release from tension and enables one to move forward in his/her life, with a more promising outlook.

Physically, Obsidian often points to the root cause of an illness. It clears the blockages that cause disease.  Use Obsidian for detoxifying, alleviating bleeding, increasing blood circulation, and helping with the pain associated with arthritis and other joint discomfort.
