Black Obsidian is a powerful protection stone, it is formed by molten lava that cooled very quickly and is called volcanic glass. Technically this is not a mineral as it forms to quickly to create an internal crystalline structure, however this gives Black Obsidian an unusual energy field within the mineral kingdom.
The number one gift that Obsidian gives is energy deflection. If you are a sensitive soul or an emotional empath this is a great stone for you as it will wrap a an impenetrable shield around you, this is not a stone to be taken into social gatherings as it will close off your energy from making connections with other people.
Have you got a difficult decision to make? Hold some Obsidian in your hand, quiet your thoughts and observe what materialises in your inner mind, this will guide you down the right path.
