Black Obsidian is a volcanic, amorphous, siliceous glassy rock formed from molten lava that cools very rapidly. It varies from transparent to opaque. It's a strong psychic protection stone that can cleanse negative psychic smog from one's aura. It is said to awaken the gift of prophecy.
Black Obsidian is a superb ally for spiritual or healing work as it can assist one in connecting with Mother Gaia. It can help one release disharmony, stress, negative attachments, resentment, fear and anger. These stones may aid one in discovering the spiritual aspects of unconditional love, and use this energy to make one's life better.
Black Obsidian is said to aid in conditions such as hardening of the arteries, joint pain, arthritis, cramps and circulation problems.
