Therapeutic Properties of Obsidian

Therapeutic Properties of Black Obsidian

Obsidian is considered extremely protective and said to allow no negative energy or negative spirit to enter. In the Middle Ages it was thought to drive out demons. It provides protection from negative spirits.

Obsidian can be polished to a shiny mirror surface. Because of this shiny, mirror surface, Obsidian is attributed with the ability to reflect back to us our true selves. It reveals to us our flaws in no uncertain terms. Because of this property, obsidian is said to remove emotional blocks. Said to be a vision stone for use in vision quests and prophetic dreaming.

Obsidian is a gemstone of the 1st Chakra. It provides protection, grounding and protection from negative self-image, especially with respect to our physical appearance. Especially helpful in times of grief.

Obsidian was given as a remedy for snake poison. Useful to combat grief and depression.

Obsidian is useful as a grounding stone. Gem therapists recommend that you gaze into it for a very short time (1-5 minutes) each day for 3 days when you need insight into a problem. Use black obsidian if you are unable to use aquamarine. This is a very strong stone. Use it sparingly.
