Crystal System...

Green Obsidian, like all Obsidians, has an amorphous crystal system and is in the mineral class of oxides. It is formed volcanically when lava that was rich in silicic acids cooled very quickly. The result of this creates a mass that is very rich in minerals, and sometimes gas inclusions.

Its coloring ranges from a deep green to a paler aqua/bluish/green shade. This variety has come from Pachuca, Mexico and is identified by its unique green color and its internal purity (quite noticeable when held up to the light). Variations in the oxidation state of the small amounts of iron contained in its mix provides its greenish hue.

Green Obsidian helps in gently removing the connection cords to others that we no longer desire to have. It is done gently, but with purpose and will prevent future connections by redirecting the cords to an endless vessel filled with white light.

In ancient times in the area of Mexico, figurines, ear spools, beads, and vases were fashioned from this green variety.

In old excavations, it has been primarily found in what would have been in more elite homes. Just as steel was a commodity in the midwest in the 1900's, Green Obsidian held the same type of importance in ancient times and was a prized possession.
