Obsidian occurs when volcanos melt rock (lava) and the resulting magma cools forming black glass. It has been used by ancient man for arrow heads, spear heads, jewelry and cutting tools. Modern surgeons use obsidian in scalpels since it is sharper than even the sharpest surgical steel.
It is especially beautiful when jewelry is produced in both polished and matte finish like this Buddha head carved from obsidian.
