This beautiful bracelet is made of 8mm Smoky Obsidian. Black Obsidian’s vibrations are grounding and protecting. Shielding against unwanted energies, it makes a great talisman. Many cultures wore Obsidian for this purpose. Obsidian allows one to look inwards for causes of dis-ease or for deep healing.
Black Obsidian is also known as the “Teacher Stone", or the “Warrior of Truth”, because it does not cater to the ego, instead forcing one to see their true self. This gemstone can be overwhelming when working with it for healing, as it will quickly bring to the surface the negative energies and the difficult truths to be released, and can affect emotions. When working with Obsidian, one should be ready to just let the emotions spill over and be released, rather than try to hold them back. It is best used by an experienced Energy Worker. During healing work, Obsidian will offer protection, remove energetic attachments, hooks and cords, as well as any negative energies from the Auric Field.
There are many uses for Obsidian, spheres for scrying, pyramids under beds for protection and healing, palm stones for Astral Travel, Shamanic practices and meditation, communication with Spirit World and for divination. Obsidian knives and mirrors are used in magic work.
