Black Obsidian goes through a multi-stage transformation. Starting as molten lava, it quickly cools into volcanic glass. It is found in many places all over the world.

Obsidian is most often associated with Sagittarius.

This stone comes in many different colors, including rainbow, blue, green, mahogany, etc. We are focusing on Black Obsidian in this article since it is the most common.

Obsidian Properties

Black Obsidian is best to have in creative spaces or workspaces like a studio, office, or even in the kitchen when using it for mental clarity.

Because this crystal draws in negative energy, be sure to cleanse it regularly, as well as take good care of its physical surroundings. Do not place the stone on the floor or anywhere else where it can get neglected.

Obsidian forms very quickly from cooling lava, so it has minimal to no crystalline structure. This structure makes it a powerful stone to work with; conversely, it should be used with care to make sure you are not overwhelmed by the speed and power.
