Obsidian is said to be truth-enhancing. A strongly protective stone, it forms a shield against negativity. It blocks psychic attack and absorbs negative energies from the environment. Obsidian draws out mental stress and tension. It stimulates growth on all levels, urging exploration of the unknown and opening new horizons. Brings clarity to the mind and clears confusion. Helps you to know who you truly are. Obsidian dissolves emotional blockages and ancient traumas. Promotes qualities of compassion and strength.
Obsidian is a natural form of volcanic glass. Being a form of glass, Obsidian can break causing sharp edges and was often used for tools and weapons by people long ago. Obsidian is typically black but occasionally two different types of lava flowed together but were so viscous they did not mix completely thus producing different colors as seen in Mahogany Obsidian. Crystals of cristobalite in the lava cause the white specks seen in Snowflake Obsidian.
The Legend of the Apache Tear:
One day a party of Apache Indians was ambushed by an enemy tribe. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leaped from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already.
