Obsidian is a naturally formed glass produced by volcanoes when the lava, which was rich in silica, had rapidly cooled. It is known as a stone for protection & cleansing and is thought to help release negative energy in your body as well as your energetic field (or aura.) Obsidian is also used for getting in touch with buried issue, how perfect that you can use it in wand form to physically massage out emotionally stored energy & blockages in the body. In the Aztec culture, it is called Itztli or the divine stone & is under the power of the god Tezcatlipoca or Smoking Mirror. He is the Lord of the Night, the god of the nocturnal sky & known as the embodiment of change through conflict.
Our wands were purchased from a family owned mine in Mexico, where Roberto + his daughters mine & shape each piece themselves. Each is unique but measures about ~5 inches in length and weighing around 2.5oz. It has fasceted sides and an accupressure tip!
**This wand does have a small chip on the side- see photo in my hand - it has been discounted.
