Mahogany Obsidian is a gentle grounding stone

Mahogany Obsidian Crystal

At Moonrise Crystals we believe that there’s a crystal for every person and every situation. This Mahogany Obsidian was gifted to a very special person. They were nominated by someone who loves them very much.

She’s been feeling a little down lately. Things are okay, but she’s not working right now and finances are tight. Living in North Hollywood, surrounded by artsy glitz on all sides, it can seem like the world is divided into two groups of people – the ones who are making it and the ones who are falling behind. A few weeks ago, her friend and mentor passed away, so now her heart is grieving too. Things feel a bit darker than they did before.

Another friend sees the sorrow and uncertainty. She wants her to know that she is loved and that everything is going to be alright.

Their Stone

Mahogany Obsidian is a gentle grounding stone that helps us to feel safe and secure, and to know we are worthy of good things. It attracts financial prosperity and helps us to get through difficult seasons of life. Mahogany Obsidian reminds us to take care of ourselves on every level; physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It comforts our mind and heart when we are grieving or struggling with depression/anxiety. It also encourages us to recognize what we can do to change our own life and to create a more positive future. It is a stone of truth, which can reveal that which is hidden. Mahogany Obsidian shows us that we are in fact stronger, wiser, more beautiful and more powerful than we give ourselves credit for.
