Obsidian: the Stone from the Underworld

Sunday, 20 September 2009

obsidianObsidian was believed to originate from the hell, though the mineral was productively and widely used to manufacture knives and arrow tips, and later on the craftsmen initiated production of various jewels and decorative items. Obsidian is not the stone as such, it is rather the volcanic glass. This is the clinker that hardens so fast to form minerals. The Roman Obsius who was the first to bring the obsidian from the Ethiopia gave it his name. The earliest obsidian items were first discovered in Mesopotamia, which are over nine thousand years old.  

Obsidian is believed to have the volcanic energy, and thus, it was honored by many religions and mostly applied as religious attributes for various events. The obsidian is said to be «the black hole inside us», the most powerful agent to give the physical but not mental strength. Moreover, the obsidian is practiced in litotherapy to treat rheumatism and gout, urino-genital tract diseases, as well to clean the inner organs. The ancient Greeks believed that spices are kept better and longer in obsidian container.

It is curious but it is said that «the underworld activity result» protects from the evil eye and curse, damnation and other black magic, evils and merely ill-minded people. This stone protects you when you travel and rehabilitates your mental health after your heart is broken from love, and you are protected from unfaithfulness.

The ancient civilization of the Central America, the nations made mirrors from obsidian, and the superstitions, evil eye and demons were popular things to believe there. The obsidian mirrors were assigned to help women to look more attractive and keep the nice face, and men - to learn how make a manly smile. Moreover, the mirrors were like the unique cleaning means from magic effects, yet the person looking into the obsidian mirror is believed to be immediately cleared from any evil.

As the legend tells, the obsidian is able to keep from doing ill actions. Moreover, it deprives of the chance to commit sins and suppress the negative energy, sharpen the witty thoughts and relieve from stress, very interesting present from the underworld. At the same time, obsidian appears to be the magic stone, and every magician must have it to concentrate the astral forces, and subordinate the forces. The obsidian was much appreciated by magicians since the stone helped to open the second sight port and helped to meditate, protect from vicious forces and perceive the being in this world, and it prevents from going away from the Earth making the connection between the magician and the planet.

In Transcaucasia region, the obsidian appeared as the amulet for kids to protect from trauma, evil eye and other bad things.

Even taking into account all the advantageous features of the obsidian, it is not recommended for a longer wear. The point is that the obsidian is the stone of carefulness, and if the person wears it for longer time, he may become coward soon. Though, aggressive and other horoscope signs of Fire get well balanced when wearing this stone. Pisces and Aquarius signs get concentrated when wearing obsidian, while Cancer and Virgo signs are not subject to get calm with the help of this stone, since these signs are risky to get more timid instead of getting balanced.

The obsidian usually comes in black, though some other colors are also discovered, from red to green. There are some striped obsidians with red-and-black shades. There are obsidians available with insertions of «snowflake», color spots, bands and so on. The obsidians come in nature also with iridescent pearl gleam of gold and silver shade, and sometimes with iridescent «pavonine» colors, luxury and polychrome.

Modern jewelers produce a wide range of items from obsidian, including watches and statuettes of animals, with beads, trinkets, and other stuff.

I have found that obsidian amulets need cleaning when they load up with harmful enery. They refresh with a bath of apple cider vinegar overnight or longer.
Sandalwood powder for a week is another way to do that. Sandalwood powder is better in cold weather. Glass has been spelled since prehistory. If your obsidian is spelled than do not use the apple cider vinegar as it will erase the spell.
