Silver Sheen Obsidian Egg Carved Carving Stone
Odsidian is a natural volcanic glass. This glassy, lustrous mineral is found in lava flows. Obsidian is produced when lava cools very quickly. The lava cools so quickly that no crystals can form.
Silver Sheen Obsidian appears black, but when rolled in a light has a flash of silvery light glowing from within (chatoyancy).
Obsidian was important to many ancient cultures. It was one of the major barter materials, and has been used since prehistoric times for making tools, masks, weapons, mirrors and jewelry. Obsidian was named after a Roman-Obsius.
This egg is 2.5 inches in height. There is good flash on both side.
