The Healing Properties of Stones
The dark, spellbinding powers of black obsidian are irrefutable. For centuries, it has been used by mystics to protect against negative thoughts or energies dwelling in their surroundings. This precious stone is actually not even a stone at all. It is a reflective black glass formed by the cooling of magma.
During times of unrest, black obsidian can be used to invoke strength when faced with the stress and tension that new horizons can often disinter. Rebirth comes with varying degrees of pain; therefore a sensitive vessel of energy must guard against dark forces (jealousy, oppression, and hate) that can penetrate and foul spiritual light. Black obsidian is excellent for transformation, assistance in accepting hard truths, and development of the courage to face reality as it is.
