“Obsidian is a lustrous volcanic glass. The colour range and related names are varied.” (Melody 441)
Obsidian is a deep, mysterious stone that provides ample energy for protection, acting as a shield from emotional or physical harm. It can also act as a “mirror” for self reflection, and can be very useful for shadow work especially with its’ ability to provide clarity and insight. It is said that those who wear or carry obsidian benefit from it’s shield like properties when others target you with unloving words/thoughts/energy, or even your own negativity may be stopped from further hurting your spirit. It is associated with the base of the spine, and connects you to the heart of the Earth, providing stability.
As there are many types of obsidian, there are also many uses. The obsidian above is black and is used to gain insight, and seeing into the future. It also stimulates creativity, and vibrates to the number 3.
