Rainbow Obsidian


Rainbow Obsidian is a deep black color, but when rotated in light it shows bright flashes of rainbow colors!

Rainbow Obsidian comes from the La Revoltosa Mine, San Andreas, Mun. de Magdalena, Jalisco, in Mexico.

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.

Inclusions of magnetite nanoparticles yield the unique blue, green, purple or bronze colors associated with Rainbow Obsidian. The material appears deep black until held under a bright light, then it has an iridescent, rainbow-like sheen!
