Black Obsidian can be a deeply overwhelming stone that requires respect and care. A cousin of Black Tourmaline, it creates a strong connection to your root chakra and is great for protection against psychic attacks and negativity. Deep black in colour, with brown pigments, Black Obsidian is found all around the world and formed from quickly cooled lava. It is also known as the “Stone of Truth” and has powerful metaphysical properties that aid communication with the spirit world and can reveal emotional blockages and lies that are holding you back. Black Obsidian can also help you process grief and allow you to start the healing process with more clarity. As a highly protective stone, it will clean and remove negative energy and ground yourself as it resonates strongly with your root chakra.
