Obsidian: The Night Sky in a Stone
Have you ever looked up at the night sky and been mesmerized by the way the stars seem to twinkle and dance? If so, then you've seen a glimpse of the magic that is obsidian. This beautiful black stone is said to be the embodiment of the night sky, and it has been used throughout history for everything from jewelry to scrying bowls. But what exactly is obsidian, and where does it come from? Let's take a closer look.
Obsidian is a type of natural glass that is formed when felsic lava cools extremely quickly. It is usually black or very dark in color, but can also be brown, gray, or even greenish- blue. When light hits obsidian, it can produce a brilliant sheen that some people liken to the nighttime sky. In fact, the name "obsidian" comes from the Latin word for "darkness."
This stone is found all over the world, but some of the most notable deposits are in Ethiopia, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Italy, and the United States (specifically California and Oregon). Obsidian has been used by humans for centuries; in fact, it was one of the first stones to be worked into tools. Today, it is still used for a variety of purposes, including jewelry making and carving. Obsidian is also believed to have powerful metaphysical properties. It is said to promote strength, courage, and grounding.
If you're looking for a stone that embodies the eternal night sky, then obsidian is the perfect choice. This natural glass has been used by humans for centuries and is still prized today for its beauty and metaphysical properties. So next time you're admiring the stars, remember that you're looking at a little piece of obsidian!
