About Obsidian

Obsidian is not a true rock as it is glass instead of crystal. Obsidian is formed only near active volcanoes when lava rich in feldspar and quartz extruded from a volcano cools too rapidly for crystals to form. Its fast cooling environments are along the edges of a lava flow, a volcanic dome, edges of a sill or a dike, where lava contacts water, and where lava cools while airborne.

Obsidian is found in Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Australia, Canada, Chile, Georgia, Greece, El Salvador, Guatemala, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Scotland, Turkey and right here in the United States.

Rainbow Obsidian contains inclusions of magnetite nanoparticles which give it an iridescent rainbow sheen of purple, green, and golden color.
Rainbow Obsidian is the most valued Obsidian by the gemologists and is mostly found in Switzerland, in the Lepontine Alps.

In the stone age, Obsidian was used for weapons and implements, Native Americans used it as arrowheads and the Incans for weapons, mirrors, and masks.

About Fossilized wood

Fossilized Wood, known as petrified wood, forms when a tree or woody plant has turned to stone due to being buried by sediment and protected from decay.  Petro in Greek means "rock" or "stone". As groundwater flows through the sediment it replaces the tree or plant material with an inorganic material such as calcite, opal, calcite, or silica.  The result is a fossil of the original woody material that can exhibit preserved details of the bark and wood.  It can be found all over the world.
