Obsidian’s silky, smooth sheen is evidence of a dichotomy like that of many people: one of a tumultuous past that defines its cool and solid present. Known as volcanic glass, obsidian is the result of molten material that cooled too quickly to crystallize. The lack of crystalline structures is what makes obsidian a glass, rather than a mineral. These Obsidian Hearts come to us from Mexico.
Metaphysically as well, obsidian is used to cut ties with toxic attachments. It is a protective stone that connects to the root chakra to ground the spirit and allow for self-reflection. There are several types of obsidian, including Silver Sheen and Gold Sheen, which reflect shimmering flecks of silver and gold luster atop the black surface. They have a velvet-like appearance, sparkling and glittering when the light hits them.
Silver and Gold Sheen Obsidian Hearts are used in meditation to aid in the release of anger, fear, abuse and past resentments. Golden Sheen Obsidian acts as a protective shield, deflects and repels negativity and releases blockages. The golden sheen that shimmers within this crystal aligns you with the divine, which is beyond space and time. Silver Sheen Obsidian wards off negativity and cleanses the auric field. It allows you to ground into the Earth and connect to the cosmos. The silver sheen assists you in tapping into your inner wisdom so that your greatest potential shines forth.
Each obsidian heart is completely unique in color and pattern—they are all beautiful. Due to the nature of the stone, they will all vary slightly in size, shape and color. We have limited inventory of these obsidian hearts for sale, so all sales are final.
