Obsidian is considered the stone of the Mayan and Aztecs. The volcanic rock was so abundant in the region that they used it for pretty much everything from utensils, to jewellery to weapons. Obsidian had more value than Gold.
The Aztects fashioned flat sheets of Obsidian into scrying mirrors, and ancient peoples created arrowheads and axes with magical properties. A strongly protective stone, Obsidian forms a shield against negativity, providing a grounding cord from the base chakra to the center of the earth. It absorbs negative energy from the environments and blocks psychic attack and negative spiritual influences. Obsidian brings clarity to the mind and clears confusion. Providing deep soul healing, Obsidian goes back to past lives to heal festering emotions or trauma carried forward into the present, bringing depth and clarity to emotions (Judy Hall, The Encyclopedia of Crystals).
