10mm matte and polished black obsidian, stainless steel accent. Made by hand in USA with all natural stones and securely sealed on professional grade stretch string.
Obsidian is formed when hot lava comes into contact with cold water in volcanic regions. Some of the minerals included in obsidian are iron, titanium and manganese. This beautiful crystal looks a lot like matte black onyx, but it is very different. When examining obsidian closely, you will see the rainbow shimmering effect on some of the beads. It is quite beautiful and mystical. Obsidian was historically used in weapons and blades as the natural stone is sharp and strong. Fortune tellers used obsidian as mirrors since its surface is highly glossy and reflective in the polished form.
Zodiac: Obsidian is wonderful for all zodiac signs but especially scorpio and sagittarius.
Chakra: Forehead, Third Eye
