Obsidian is a natural glass that is formed from volcanic lava that cooled quickly.
Black is the most common color but can also be found in shades of brown and gray. Red is a rare color. The color can be uniform, spotted or striped and sometimes inclusions can create a metallic sheen.
Obsidian has been sourced from Japan, Hawaii, Java, Mexico, Iceland, Hungary, as well as Arizona and New Mexico.
