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.

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.

Mining: Mahogany Obsidian may be found on the surface of the Earth and requires little to no mining to extract. The majority of commercially available Mahogany Obsidian is mined in the United States. 

Enhancements: All Mahogany Obsidian is natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

Synonyms: Volcanic Glass

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.

Sourcing Relationship

I originally had Silver Sheen Obsidian from another source with more middlemen involved.  I connected directly with my current source at the 2019 Gem and Mineral Show in Denver, Colorado.  They work exclusively in Obsidian, both pure black and rarer varieties such as Rainbow Obsidian, Gold Sheen and Silver Sheen.  I learned that the father had been mining Obsidian his whole life and that when his children became adults, they decided to start a polishing factory and direct import to the US.  Their stock is exquisite, both the quality of the stone and the polishing techniques.  I am very happy to do business with them.

    Thank you for the lovely crystals. The Obsidian Mahogany keeps coming to my mind. Life is mysterious.

  2. Paul K. (Massachusetts)

    Received them yesterday. They all have a clear and powerful energy and I am super happy with them. Most of all: I didn’t need to cleanse them energetically, as I typically need to with stones from most other sources. You do a great job! Will definitely order again!

    I had already ordered three Mahogany Obsidians from Julie and needed two more. Every one of them is distinctly unique and beautiful. Julie worked with me as I was looking for specific features in Mahogany Obsidian. Shipment is always quick and they’re always packaged so nicely. I always appreciate the tea as well 🙂 I highly recommend Moonrise Crystals.
