Black Obsidian is a powerful healing stone. It is excellent for grounding and also for protecting the aura. Black Obsidian is the stone of honesty when used together (especially when used in combination with Black Tourmaline). It can show you the meaning of the deepest mysteries of your life, the people you love, and the world in general. It will help you deal with situations and people in your life with strength and courage.  Black Obsidian is also a stone of integrity, helping you to stay on the straight and narrow in life.

Black Obsidian is a pure, glossy black color born quickly out of rapid cooling lava flows from a volcano.  It has been around since the prehistoric times. It was used to make arrowheads, spear points, and other cutting tools.  It was also used by those in the stone age, lightworkers, spiritualists, Native American shamans, and alchemists because of its powers to heal.
