Another name for Black Obsidian is glass agate. However, because Black Obsidian forms from fast-flowing lava, we call it volcanic glass. Finally, Black Obsidian contains the combined elements of earth, water and fire, making this crystal a powerful transformative stone.
Black Obsidian’s purpose is to take the mind through the darkened areas of the subconscious to establish identify in the super-conscious. It acts as a mirror that reflects the flaws of one’s nature and magnifies the fears, insecurities, and egocentric attitudes that suppress the soul’s superior qualities. Another name for Black Obsidian is “the warrior of truth.”
Black Obsidian is a master teacher and helps us understand the true meaning of the color black. Black, being the dense, the dark and the unknown. It is the polar opposite to the color white, which is the seen, the lightened and the known. Each of these expressions is the exact opposite of the other.
Black Obsidian can reveal how to bring more light into a darkened world. It allows the mind to discern all manifestations come from the same source. Black and white are equally powerful forms of light.
