Obsidian Crystal Meaning and Healing Properties

Born from the Earth out of Pure Fire

What is Obsidian?

Obsidian is originally volcanic glass, which will show different colors or luster because of its characteristics. There are about 30 varieties of obsidian. Obsidian is a complex silicate mineral formed by the rapid cooling of volcanic magma. The black obsidian is mainly found in volcanic areas in Mexico, USA, Thailand, Canada, Peru, and New Zealand. Due to the oxidized iron contained within the mineral composition, these crystals are usually in black color. In terms of its structure, obsidian minerals are more like glass than crystal, and their properties make obsidian appear "dull" compared to other sparkling stones. However, there are deeper secrets within these seemingly "boring" crystals.

 Obsidian actually comes in a variety of forms, each having a unique name, ranging from smoky, translucent "Apache Tear" to fully opaque black volcanic crystal.

 • Snowflake obsidian contains gray and white flakes of feldspar, mica, and the similar minerals, while mahogany obsidian has red and brown stripes.

 • The rainbow-hues of the iridescent obsidian is due to the reflection of light by the tiny minerals enclosed within it and is formed due to different cooling rates.

 • Gold obsidian, silver obsidian, and Mahogany obsidian

Unrounded and unpolished obsidian usually has sharp edges and should be handled with care. The rarest obsidian types are golden obsidian and silver obsidian. These are formed with air bubbles and have a presence of gold or silver substances near the surface, it is said that they provide the energy of the sun and the moon.

In ancient times, obsidian was often used to make weapons and knives because of its glass properties and sharpness. In blood sacrifice rituals of South America, the shaman believed that the use of obsidian could avoid the entanglement of the soul, and could expel evil forces.
