Obsidian is a naturally occurring opaque volcanic glass that is created when felsic lava from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth. Obsidian is hard and brittle, and so it fractures with very sharp edges which explains its popular use in the past as a cutting implement. The golden sheen is caused by air bubbles from flowing lava, remaining through cooling.
These pendants hold the stark black color the mineral is known for, making the six-sided design simple and eye catching. Any one of these would be great for casual or formal wear.
Obsidian is thought to shield the wearer from negativity, release tension, and give the wearer a sense of calm and protection. It is believed that when you use Black Obsidian during meditation it can help lead you towards creative solutions to pressing problems. The Gold Sheen is associated with understanding self motivations and true expression or one's gifts.
