Spiderweb Obsidian Cabochon Stone
This Spiderweb Obsidian cabochon is a rounded triangle or shield shape. It is 35 mm on the long side by 32 mm long on the other two and 5 mm thick. Because of the mirror finish, this material is hard to photograph-very reflective-so the pictures are shot at an angle.
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'.
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: Legends say Spiderweb Obsidian provides strength in times of need.
