Obsidian is a natural glass, it is produced during a release of silica-rich lava containing very little water (- 3%). At the time
from its exit of the volcano, it undergoes a very fast cooling which freezes the mechanisms of crystallization. "It's like a piece of lava frozen when it came out of the volcano.Lean Buddha carved in black obsidian, fine volcanic stone from Mexico.Gemma, black semiprecious stone, fine volcanic stone from Mexico.

Our obsidians are worked from generation to generation by a talented family, directly on the site of the major temples of Teotihuacan in Mexico. They are the result of volcanic creation and benefit from the strong telluric energies of the site of the pyramids.

Obidian is the result of the vitrification of molten lava and represents the perfect balance between yin and yang. Obsidian is a stone of truth [acts as a kind of mirror]. A personal preparation is necessary to wear an obsidian, because it releases deep things, where one needs to advance.

Obsidian is particularly powerful. Black, in the West, is associated with mourning, anxiety, and malaise. In Mexico, black is the color of knowledge and wisdom, of true birth and the highest degree of consciousness. Solidly connected to Mother Earth, obsidian sharpens our vision and drives away our illusions. It promotes positive thoughts.
