What is black obsidian stone?
Obsidian is a natural black quartz stone, and is found in a number of places worldwide.
Obsidian is a stone with a shiny, glassy testure that is formed naturally when volcanic lave comes in contact with water. Obsidian is commonly found within the margins of rhyolitic lava flows known as obsidian flows, where the chemical composition (high silica content) induces a high viscosity and polymerization degree of the lava.
