This listing is for a 33" Black Obsidian chip strand. The chips measure approx 5 - 12mm.
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.
Obsidian is 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.
