This beautiful crystal is naturally occurring glass. Before mankind figured out how to make glass, Mother Nature was already doing it!

At Artopia Spirit we sell Obsidian in its raw form for collectors of crystals, for spiritual work and for use in mosaic art.

In reality, stone-age man began using obsidian to make tools and spearheads way before George R.R. Martin dreamt up his epic fantasy stories.  Obsidian is associated with PROTECTION & releasing disharmony, resentment, fear and anger.  

For Mosaics:  its highly lustrous, reflective undulating surface lends itself to textural mosaics.
