Golden Sheen Obsidian INFO GRAPHIC.png

Golden Sheen Obsidian is brown or black colored Obsidian that reflects a golden sheen on its surface as a result of gas bubbles being trapped in between its layers as the molten lava began to cool while the Obsidian was forming. It is a stone of personal power connected to the Solar Plexus Chakra that helps us reclaim our power, aligning it with the Divine so we can put it to use for the greater good of the Universe. Golden Sheen Obsidian is a favorite crystal to use for scrying as it takes you deep into the past and far ahead into the future showing you the root cause of your problems, negative thoughts or habits and what they will become if left unaddressed.  A Root Chakra crystal that keeps us grounded and deflects negativity, Golden Sheen Obsidian helps erase the thoughts, habits and patterns that we discover to be the root cause of our suffering opening the door for healing to occur.  In addition, it shines a light on our hidden talents enabling us to manifest our dream life as we find our true calling and “go for gold” pursuing that dream.

Metaphysical Information for Abalone Shell

Obsidian is actually volcanic glass formed when molten lava cools too quickly for it to crystalize. It went through an extremely fast transformation, born from the earth out of pure fire.  It is a stone without boundaries or limitations that is an extremely powerful, but often overlooked stone.  Nothing is hidden from Obsidian.  It will mercilessly expose our flaws, weaknesses and blockages.  Obsidian points out all our destructive and disempowering conditions impelling us to grow into our highest self.  Despite the harshness of what Obsidian exposes, it will be supportive as well.  It has a strong protective shield that it puts around us blocking out negativity from every angle.  It is naturally a very grounding stone that has a cord that connects us to the deep core of the earth supporting our transformation by keeping us grounded throughout.  Obsidian will help you get to the core of your problems and purify and transform you into a better version of yourself.
