Obsidian is a volcanic rock that cools very rapidly from silica-rich lava to form volcanic glass. Its always fun to think about and imagine what the conditions were like when these rocks formed! This black obsidian is from New Mexico - specifically, the four corners region. New Mexico is still geologically active with abundant natural hot springs, although it is not as active as it once was just 10,000 years ago.
Coarse - material is considered to be very coarse to coarse, ranging between 4.75 millimeters to 2 millimeters.
This product is NOT man-made, mixed with resin, or stabilized. Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we validate the source of all our minerals before they are crushed. All of our minerals are handpicked by me (Missy) at some of the largest mineral shows in the United States.
Please see product images for color, approximate size, and quality. Picture taken in full sun - material is dry. Measurements are using the metric system (millimeters).
