Called the wizard stone, obsidian has numerous magical associations. Black obsidian is a naturally created glass formed from volcanic lava that cooled quickly, causing significant crystallisation to occur.
Black Obsidian stimulates personal growth on all levels by alleviating and opening new horizons.
Black crystals such as black tourmaline, black onyx, jet as well as obsidian are renowned for being strong protective crystals. Just as dark clothes in the sun absorb heat, black crystals absorb low vibrational energies that may be unwanted or unhelpful in increasing your personal vibration.
