Obsidian is often the result of volcanic lava coming in contact with water (a lake or an ocean), and thus being cooled too quickly to form a clear crystalline structure. The process does produce a glassy texture in the resulting rock. It can be found where volcanic activity is, or has been in the past. Some locations include; Hawaii, Japan, Iceland, Hungary, Mexico, Ecuador, and Guatemala. Note: some of the obsidian used is from the USA! Arizona and New Mexico.
Obsidian said to be a very powerful stone, reminding one that birth and death are simultaneous and constantly present, not as one with the other, but always as one.
