A volcanic igneous rock of high hardness. Its name comes from the Latin “obsidianus lapisque” which means Obsius stone, in reference to the roman that first discovered it in Ethiopia.
In the Archaic period it was used by hunters to create spearheads. For prehispanic cultures the use of obsidian was of enormous importance, being a symbol of high ritual content and an essential element in all kind of offerings until well into the colony.
Obsidian impels us to grow and supports us through the process. It is the stone of those who do not want to stop, those who seek untiringly and are able to find answers where others see nothing.
