OBSIDIAN. (Third Eye Chakra)
Handmade and stranded on durable, stretchy elastic. One size fits all.
Black obsidian is said to be the “stone of truth.” It is helpful in developing intuition and a powerful grounding stone, releasing negative energies that result in restlessness, irritability and nervousness. It is known for helping to protect against depression, drawing out mental stress/tension, dissolving emotional blockages/old traumas. This stone symbolizes self-control and resilience. It is the stone of the soft-hearted and gentle people of the world , promoting qualities of compassion and strength and stimulates growth on all levels, urging exploration of the unknown and opening new horizons – helping you to know who you truly are and not who you think you are. Obsidian is naturally occurring, lustrous volcanic glass; molten lava that cooled so quickly it had no time to crystallize. Obsidian can contain small bubbles of air that are aligned along layers created as the molten rock was flowing just before being cooled. These bubbles can produce interesting effects such as a golden sheen.
Obsidian also works with the Root Chakra as it is a stone that is an anchor for the spirit.
Birthstone for Capricorn and Scorpio.
