Don’t be confused by the name! Although it is mined in Africa, this stone is actually a form of Jasper, not Turquoise.
African Turquoise is considered the ‘Stone of Evolution’ as it encourages spiritual growth and grounding whilst awakening one’s soul purpose.
It opens the mind to new ideas and possibilities while encouraging action, bringing with it structure, balance and prosperity.
Mirrors that were made of highly polished Black Obsidian were used by the Mayans & Aztecs as tools to see into the future, which may be why Black Obsidian is known as a wizard’s stone today.
Gaze into a Black Obsidian crystal to see through problems & find the solutions.
Connected to the Root Chakra, Black Obsidian absorbs irritability and restlessness, and shields from negative energy.
Besides the beautiful fragrance that sandalwood provides, it also supports mental clarity and relaxation.
