Obsidian - Benefits and Properties-Adrian Jade



Obsidian was extremely valued in Stone Age cultures because, like flint, it could be broken down to produce sharp blades or arrowheads. It was also polished to create mirrors in the stone age.

Obsidian is natural glass that was originally molten magma associated with a volcano. This volcanic glass has an almost total absence of sizable mineral crystals within the glass matrix. 

Obsidian was named after it's resemblance to a stone found in Ethiopia by the name “Obsius”. Its truth reflecting qualities are ruthless in exposing flaws and weaknesses. Nothing can be hidden from this magical stone.

It relieves all the negative energy and vitalizes the purpose of the soul. This spiritual powerhouse eliminates energy blocks and relieves tension. Furthermore, it anchors the spirit into the body and therefore urges the wearer to explore new horizons.

Once the confusion and belief systems have been cleared, it expands your consciousness and helps you enter the realm of the unknown with confidence and ease.

This stone helps you identify behavioral patterns that are outdated and assists in clearing them. Obsidian dissolves emotional blockages and ancient traumas, bringing a depth and clarity to the emotions. It promotes compassion and strength

Chakra Properties of Obsidian:

Obsidian, in general, is known to align the Base -Chakra located at the base of the spine.

Governed by the adrenal glands, it looks after our bones, teeth, nails, spinal column, anus, rectum, colon, prostate gland, blood and cell building. 

The base chakra controls our “grounding” to the earth and is associated with all our survival instincts and self-preservation.  

Benefits of wearing Obsidian: 

Black Obsidian also helps to interact with the karma of past life.

Believers advocate that placing the stone on the crown chakra and questioning about the incomplete tasks of your past draws definite answers to its wearer.

Obsidian brings clarity to the mind and clears confusion and restricting belief systems. It may do this by making it absolutely clear to you what lies behind mental distress or disease.
