Location: Obsidian deposits are located all over the world, but Mahogany Obsidian is found principally in Afghanistan, Japan, Mexico, Turkey, and the United States.
Rock Family: Mahogany Obsidian is not a mineral, but rather a rock. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! Mahogany Obsidian is an igneous rock made of volcanic glass, which is the black coloring, and Hematite, which is the reddish-brown coloring.
Formation: Obsidian is formed when lava from a volcanic explosion solidifies so quickly that there is no time for mineral crystals to grow within it. It is sometimes referred as “volcanic glass” due to its glass-like texture. Obsidian is typically jet black, however the inclusion of various minerals can create colored varieties and sheens. Mahogany Obsidian is a type of Black Obsidian that has been mixed with Hematite.

History of Mahogany Obsidian
Mahogany Obsidian was “discovered” relatively recently by the metaphysical community and so it was not included in any early lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. However, Black Obsidian was used by many nearby indigenous cultures to make weapons, tools, and ornaments, as well as for healing and spiritual purposes. It is likely that Mahogany Obsidian would have been similarly used.
Healing Properties of Mahogany Obsidian
Spiritual: Mahogany Obsidian is a deep grounding stone which helps us to anchor our spiritual life within the full spectrum of mortal human life. It helps us stay centered and approach life with a holistic attitude that includes caring for our spiritual, emotional, and physical needs in equal proportions. It also helps us to better recognize both the mind-body connection as well as the body-mind connection. Mahogany Obsidian additionally protects against negative psychic energy from other people as well as psychic attacks from other entities. It is an abundance stone, reminding us that our financial health and well-being is important too and that we deserve to have security and enjoyment. Mahogany Obsidian is attuned to the Root and Sacral Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Libra and Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the numbers 1 and 4.
Emotional: Mahogany Obsidian is a very comforting stone to work with when dealing with old emotional traumas and wounds. It gently and safely brings up unconscious memories of abuse, feelings of shame, and guilt, and beliefs about our own self worth. It then helps us to work through them and find true resolution. Mahogany Obsidian also encourages us to freely express our sensuality and sexuality, and let go of negative body images, asking us to please release and believe we are beautiful just as we are. It has a gentle energy that is comforting during times when we feel down. If there is nothing we can control, such as in the case of death/grieving, Mahogany Obsidian validates and soothes our emotions. If there is something we can control or change, such as our relationships or career, Mahogany Obsidian helps us to see the actual problem clearly and solve it swiftly and with ease.
Mental: Mahogany Obsidian encourages us to explore our beliefs about whether or not we “deserve” to have good things – such as financial abundance, happy romantic relationships, or a just a better life in general. Mahogany Obsidian helps us to realize that we DO deserve good things and that the past doesn’t have to dictate our future. It then offers us its great strength to help us build happier lives and be confident in our own abilities. Whenever we are engaged in our goals, and living a life which feels meaningful, Mahogany Obsidian infuses us with a sense of vitality and fresh energy.
Physical: Mahogany Obsidian is believed to strengthen the liver, kidneys, and other lower organs. It is most commonly used by metaphysical healers to support detoxification and to reduce physical tension. It is also highly recommended for anyone working through body issue disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and obesity, as well as unusual physical handicaps.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Earth to Pocket
These Mahogany Obsidians were mined and tumbled in the United States.
I originally found the US wholesale company while searching for a source for Black Tourmaline and Nephrite Jade. After making an initial purchase, I was immediately impressed by their quality. This company provides wonderful customer service and I often call them to ask questions about various minerals, or even to share with them things which I have learned! The combination of high quality stones, affordable prices, and knowledgeable staff makes me happy to do business with them.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Mahogany Obsidian for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Mahogany Obsidian or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Mahogany Obsidian measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be a rich brick red with black markings. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.
With their subtle shimmer and clean energies, these Mahogany Obsidian are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
Safe Handling of Mahogany Obsidian
Obsidian is a type of natural glass and so can easily break or chip! They should not be casually carried in a pocket or in a medicine bag. They are best kept as collectors pieces or on an altar, handling with care.
Good to Know:
Mahogany Obsidian can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
Mahogany Obsidian can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.
Tumbled and fully smooth Mahogany Obsidians can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Mahogany Obsidian Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.
Mahogany Obsidian can be left in sunshine for extended periods of time without losing their color. However, it is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
