Obsidian is a kind of volcanic glass that is black in color. Obsidian does not fade in sunlight due to its black hue and glass structure, and it is frequently found naturally outdoors. Clear Quartz: Known as the "Queen of Cleansing Crystals," clear quartz does not fade owing to its lack of pigmentation. It is a popular material for jewelry because of its beauty and durability.
Clear quartz is most commonly white or colorless, but it can also be red, yellow, green, or brown as well. Each piece of clear quartz has a different color inside it; this is because each time quartz is exposed to air, it loses its inner tension over time, allowing other elements such as iron, manganese, and chromium to leach into the rock from the surrounding soil. These minerals are the source of quartz's color, as well as its property of absorbing harmful radiation.
Clearing quartz allows the body to absorb more of the energy from radiation sources such as X-rays, radon gas, and ultraviolet light. This makes clear quartz useful in protecting people from exposure to these types of hazards. Clear quartz is also used in shielding products that create electromagnetic fields (EMFs) because it absorbs some of this energy too.
Obsidian and clear quartz are both good options for jewelry because of their ability to absorb energy.
Pure obsidian has a black look, although the color changes based on the impurities present. Iron and other transition metals may provide a dark brown to black hue to obsidian. The majority of black obsidians have nanoinclusions of magnetite, an iron oxide. Only a few obsidian samples are practically colorless. They may show some pale gray or white streaks or they may be completely black.
Obsidian is very hard (even by geological standards) and brittle material that forms when water vapor and liquid rock meet volcanic glass. It can be as sharp as a knife blade and often contains small crystals of quartz or other materials. Obsidian is used for cutting tools because of its hardness and resistance to breakage. It is also popular as a decorative material due to its variety of colors and patterns produced by microscopic bubbles in the molten rock.
Black obsidian most likely results from hydrous reactions between silica-rich liquids and ferric compounds in the presence of oxygen. Black magnetite inclusions may be present due to oxidation of the magma before it reaches the surface or during eruption.
The color of obsidian is determined by the amount of iron present. Pure obsidian is black, but it can also be red, green, blue, yellow, or opaque white. Impurities in the lava may include colored minerals such as chromium ore (red), copper ore (blue-green), zinc ore (black), silver ore (white), and gold ore (yellow).
Obsidian is really a frozen liquid with minor mineral impurities. Consider the color. Although pure obsidian is normally black, it can occasionally be virtually transparent. This occurs when small amounts of quartz are incorporated into the rock before it is fused together. The presence of quartz increases its hardness and makes the stone more brittle. As well, some obsidians contain small inclusions that may be diamonds, emeralds, or other precious stones.
Obsidian was originally formed as volcanic lava that had not yet solidified. As it cooled down, tiny crystals of quartz became embedded in its surface. Over time, more and more quartz crystals were added until they reached a size where they could no longer fit into the rock. The result is glass with minuscule amounts of other elements such as iron, magnesium, or calcium substituted for silicon in the crystal structure.
When exposed to heat or cold, obsidian will shatter into sharp pieces called splinters. This makes it useful for tools because one can easily extract the metal from which they are made. In fact, obsidian is used by some Native Americans today for making knives because it breaks so cleanly and doesn't dull like steel does.
Native Americans also used obsidian for weapons because of its sharpness and ability to retain its edge.
Examine the widespread presence of the obzidian. Smooth glass gives it a unique appearance. Obsidian is a frozen liquid with trace levels of mineral impurities. Because pure obsidian is normally black, it can occasionally be virtually white. Also because it's a fragile material that's difficult to work, obsidian often contains small inclusions of another substance: quartz or rock crystal. The term "obsidian" comes from the Latin word for a volcanic glass, obsidiana.
Obsidian is found in only two places on Earth: in Hawaii and on Mauna Kea, part of an active volcano. It's made when water vapor in the air contacts the hot lava flow from volcanoes like Kilauea or Mauna Loa. This causes the water to freeze instantly into tiny glass particles that are shot into the air where they float down to the ground, forming large sheets of obsidian up to 20 feet (6 m) long and 1/4 inch (.6 cm) thick.
People have used obsidian as a knife blade since pre-Columbian times. But it was not until much later that scientists started to study it more closely.
Obsidian is a sort of black or dark glass that forms when lava cools. In romance novels, it is sometimes used as a fancy way of describing people's eyes, as in, "Her eyes were black and gleaming, two obsidian orbs."
Obsidian eyes are beautiful but deadly; they are the eyes of a goddess, but also the eyes of a demon. They are the eyes of a creature who sees all, knows all, feels no remorse for what she does. She is no longer human because she has found a way to feed her addiction by taking life.
People with obsidian eyes are dangerous because they have seen too much, know too much. They have no need for secrecy or deception because truth is not important to them. There is nothing good about revealing secrets or showing mercy, because why should they if they can't be saved?
As beautiful as obsidian eyes are, they are also frightening. They are pure emotion, without any filter, so they can cause great pain to those around them. Someone with obsidian eyes could break your heart in half or smash it into a million pieces if that's what they wanted to do.
There is only one person who can save someone with obsidian eyes from themselves... another person with obsidian eyes.
