Obsidian Sphere (50-60 mm)
Description: Black Obsidian Sphere. This is natural Obsidian, volcanic glass. Well-formed and quite exquisite.
Obsidian is a talisman of those who dare to see…the past, the future, or one’s own inner demons and darkest truths. It is no ordinary stone, but nature’s glass formed from volcanic lava and hardened so quickly it formed no crystalline structure. It has no boundaries or limitations and works rapidly with great power. Its dark, glossy surface polished into the cold, hard glass, a “mirror stone” for those prepared to look deep into the inner being, the subconscious, to reveal one’s shadow self…flaws, weaknesses, fears, all. Nothing is hidden from Obsidian.

Primary Uses: All forms of Obsidian stimulate healing of the emotional body, helping those who have lost their power to regain it by facing the darker side of one’s nature caused by the wounding of one’s spirit. Verbal and physical abuse, sudden trauma, grief, even events beyond one’s control can create destructive thoughts and unconscious patterns that inhibit one’s personal and spiritual growth. It is the basis for eating disorders and addictions, fear and insecurities, depression, aggression, and other mechanisms that hold one to the past in order to survive. Obsidian exposes these wounds, and when one is ready to accept responsibility for one’s own healing, reveals the actions needed to release them. It enables one to accept who they are with compassion and to move forward.
