Rough Obsidian slab with polished face
Approx. 5" x 4" x 2.5"
Named for Obsidius, a Roman explorer who “discovered” the stone in Ethiopia, Obsidian is a glassy, volcanic rock that is easily broken and shaped, making it ideal for making tools, which was done by humans for hundreds of thousands of years all over the world. It is a popular stone for protection against negative energies, both those in your environment and those floating around in your head.
Due to the nature of our products each piece is unique and therefore varies in shape and size. Our sizing of the stones is a close approximation.
Obsidian Meaning + Healing Properties
How to Use:
Once your new crystal arrives, we suggest cleansing and charging it before you begin using it for meditation, manifestation, or other practices. You never know who has handled your crystal on its journey from where it was harvested to you. Cleansing and charging your crystal ensures that it is ready for you to use however you wish.
One of the most popular ways to use crystals of all shapes is by placing them around your home or workspace. You can also carry them with you in a pocket or purse, or wear them as jewelry.
Rough, unpolished crystals are as close as you can come to encountering crystals in their natural form. Some believe that these more natural and unworked stones produce a greater amount of energy. These pieces are best suited for decoration as many are either too large to hold for long periods or they are more fragile in their natural state. Place these types of crystal specimens in a room to promote positive energy and balance.
Crystals can be cleansed using a variety of methods. It's important to choose a method that feels right for you and your crystals. Some people prefer to use natural methods, such as placing their crystals in sunlight or moonlight, while others prefer to use more traditional cleansing methods, such as smudging with sage or palo santo. Ultimately, the best way to care for your crystals is to listen to your intuition and choose a method that feels right for you and your unique collection of crystals.
