Rainbow Obsidian Feel Loved Crystals Moonrise Crystals

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

She’s been curled up in her cocoon for years. She had a poetic life. Perhaps it was a bit crumbly about the edges, but it had a steady center of love. When she lost him, it all came to an end. She dissolved into formlessness in the Dark. No way of knowing whether she was lost forever or transforming into something else. Being in a cocoon isn’t a pretty process. It’s terrible to dissolve. Reforming and transforming is the hardest work of a lifetime.

But she’s about to emerge. She doesn’t even know it yet, but she’s an iridescent butterfly and her wings are going to be glorious! Her friend knows a thing or two about growing wings. She knows what’s in store.
