Obsidian is formed from volcanic lava. It has a glossy, shiny black surface that reflects all around it. Obsidian calls us to look inside ourselves. It reveals our darker, shadow side It is also a very protective stone that reflects negative energy away from us. This is the perfect stone for empaths. Instead of taking on other people's emotions, feelings and energies, it blocks them from entering you. Use it to get to the root of any problems you find when looking inside yourself. Manifest your future and align with your highest self.
