Add a powerful and protective boost to your mineral collection with an Obsidian Arrowhead.
Obsidian is translucent black sometimes with a golden sheen.
Mineralogy: Obsidian (volcanic silica glass) forms when silica-rich magma of granitic composition flows onto the earth’s surface and usually encounters water. The magma cools and solidifies before minerals can develop and crystallize; therefore, obsidian is an amorphous solid (glass) rather than a mineral aggregate. Coloring comes from trace amounts of iron and magnesium and when chipped can be translucent.
Metaphysical Properties: Considered a stone of protection, aiding in self-control and maintaining courage in the face of adversity.
As with all of Mother Nature's creations, appearance will vary, but the item you receive will be similar in quality to the photos above.
