The volcanic mineral Obsidian, is an igneous rock, formed when magma cools instantly and so fast, that its atoms fail to transform into a crystalline structure.
Obsidian is an amorphous material, called a ‘mineraloid’, a volcanic glass with a smooth uniform texture.
Obsidian is mostly extrusive, it solidifies above the Earth’s surface. However, it can form in a variety of cooling processes, such as; along the edges of a lava stream or at volcanic craters, when magma reacts to the open air or contacts water.
Usage of the Obsidian crystal, can be traced back to Paleolithic times, when it was used to make weapons and tools.
In these prehistoric times, when the Obsidian rock was most likely not yet used for aesthetic reasons, this warrior stone also protected our Paleo-Indian ancestors from marauding invaders and the perils of hunting.
With such a rich lineage, Obsidian reminds us of its reputation for being a powerful and protective talisman.
Known as the ‘psychic cleanser’, Obsidian, with its intense, mysterious energy, provides a spiritual force, allowing a deep psychic cleanse, all the way down to the emotional debris from the past. The crystal especially protects from dark, shadow traits such as addiction, fear, anxiety, and anger.
Obsidian is intertwined with the concept of darkness, and just like the Earth and its phases of night and day, the human soul also contains elements of light and darkness.
Being such a powerful protection stone, Obsidian helps identify your dark side so that its magical properties can let you master it from your psyche. Reminding us that everyone and everything has a good and bad side, Obsidian sheds its mystical glow on our darkness. Instead of hiding it from our inner truth, this rock can clear negativity or transform it into positive strength.
Being truth-enhancing, it forms a shield against negativity, blocks anxiety and absorbs negative energies from the environment, just like it is known to dissolve emotional blockages and traumas.

Scorpio is the eighth of the 12 zodiac signs.
Ruled by the powerful and seductive Scorpion, it is the most mysterious sign of the zodiac.
Secretive by nature, Scorpio takes us to shadowy and dark places for which usually we lack the courage to confront ourselves with.
Being the sign of life, death and resurrection, Scorpio embraces these cycles and perpetually transforms itself.
There are four incarnations of Scorpio.
The first is the venomous, possessive Scorpion itself; the second is the slippery, charming but deadly snake; the third is the soaring eagle whose piercing gaze sharply observes the landscape (and its prey).
Scorpio’s final incarnation is the ever-burning, all-seeing Phoenix that rises up from the ashes into eternal rebirth.
These earrings will strengthen and guide the wearer, through all the transitional stages in life.
