Black Raven Obsidian Crystal (Small)


Currently Unavailable


Description: Black Raven is a rare form of totally black obsidian gathered near the Grand Canyon in Northern Arizona. The stones have natural surfaces that are comfortable to hold. They have weathered on the Earths surface for millions of years producing the unique natural texture resembling tektites. The remote gathering area lacks any source of water, making it nearly impossible for the ancient Indians to harvest this site. This is why the stones are not broken or chipped with sharp edges from tool making fractures. This location is one of the only places on Earth where obsidian was not actively collected by ancient native cultures. The stones have great color, texture, and shape; just the right sizes for meditation and pocket stones. Black Raven Obsidian provides a powerful energy of protection, creating a protective shield. Stones are placed around the home to protect and cleanse the space. They eliminate negative energies and aid in cleansing, grounding, and purification. Analysis of Black Raven Obsidian suggests a source deep within the Earth near the crust-mantle boundary. Dark colored elements from deep within the Earth produce the rich, deep black color and the energetic character of the stone. Obsidian is a natural glass lacking a crystalline structure, with properties of a liquid and energetically unique. Minerals have a crystalline structure and vibrate across a narrow range of frequencies. Natural glass vibrates across a broad range of frequencies emitting a broad shield of protective energy.  You will receive the typical item shown.
