Obsidian is a natural volcanic stone which was formed by a rapid cooling lava flows from a volcano which you will frequently found in Armenia. That's why it has the most potent energies : elements of water, fire and earth.
Pure obsidian is usually dark in appearance, though the color varies depending on the presence of impurities. Iron and other transition elements may give the obsidian a dark brown to black color.
The obsidian has a particular texture which gives off naturally smooth reflections under the light. In Armenia you can find a big amount of obsidian when you pass the road of the Lake Sevan. Transparency in the obsidian is unique to Armenia, is used by Armenian artisans mainly to make souvenirs or jewelry for tourists, where you can usually find in Vernisage (open market in Yerevan).
