This Spiderweb Obsidian sphere is 2.5 inches or 67 mm in diameter.
Obsidian is a natural volcanic glass. This glassy, lustrous mineral is found in lava flows. Obsidian is produced when lava cools very quickly. The lava cools so quickly that no crystals can form.
Spiderweb Obsidian was recently discovered in Chihuahua, Mexico. Only a small amount of rough is coming out! It is a lovely midnight blue with sky blue "webbing", but very hard to photograph!
Obsidian was important to many ancient cultures. It was one of the major barter materials, and has been used since prehistoric times for making tools, masks, weapons, mirrors and jewelry. Obsidian was named after a Roman-Obsius.
Metaphysical Properties: Spiderweb Obsidian is said to provide strength in times of need. It can bring calm and reduce stress.
