Obsidian , healing crystals , crystals,


Obsidian is actually molten lava that cooled so quickly after a volcanic eruption that it had no time to crystallize. It therefore has a different structure to many minerals and crystals and often presents a highly polished reflective surface even before it is tumbled or polished by human hands.

Obsidian is a stone without boundaries or limitations. It works extremely quickly and with great power. Its reflective qualities make it a stone of truth as it is merciless in reflecting our own true natures back to us. Nothing can be hidden from Obsidian.
