Black Obsidian
Energy Vibrations

If ever there was a stone that encourages us to keep it real and keep it simple, it's tumbled Black Obsidian. These are perfect stones for root chakra work and for the practical aspects of manifestation. If you're dreaming of a castle in the clouds, Black Obsidian will help you build a foundation for that castle here on earth.

Black Obsidian from Mexico

This Black Obsidian comes from Mexico.  While the exact mine is unknown, Obsidian mines reliably have a low environmental impact.

This gem dealer is a family business in the USA. It is run by two brothers who visit mines around the world. In some locations, they polish the rough stones in the same country as the mine. In other cases, they export the rough stones and have them polished in China. They also have dozens of employees who help them in their USA warehouse and at gem shows around the country.

I first encountered this supplier at the 2015 Franklin, North Carolina Gem and Mineral Show. They carry a variety of polished stones, both common and rare. The family is originally from Pakistan and helped introduce K2 Azurite to the international market. When I first saw K2 I knew it was real, but didn’t know what it was and so approached one of the owners. He and I had an instant rapport.

Years later, we greet with a hug and he expects me to have questions about all his new stock. He tells me, with justifiable pride, about all the improvements he’s made to his business since we last spoke. In 2019, this source began to label all their stones with country-of-origin. When I asked him why, he told me that he listens to his customers and that I kept asking him where all the stones come from.

Black Obsidian Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2014  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 8 minutes
Black Obsidian is a common igneous rock formed from rapidly cooling lava following a volcanic eruption. It can be easily shaped into tools, including arrowheads, and was used in prehistoric tools for hundreds of thousands of years.  Today it is still highly-desired as a metaphysical tool.  It is often included in “beginner” crystal sets, often as a stand-in for root chakra.  While all black stones offer grounding and protection, Black Obsidian won’t shield us from uncomfortable truths.  If there is something we need to know or accept, Obsidian will help us do so.  It will push us to accept reality, as it is, and as it can be if we are bold enough to seize it.
