Crystal System...

Mahogany Obsidian has an Amorphous crystal system and is in the mineral class of Oxides. It is formed volcanically when lava that is rich in silicic acid cools very rapidly. It hardens so quick that no crystalline structures are able to form. The result is a solid, molten mass that contains large amounts of minerals, water and gas inclusions. It is sometimes also called volcanic glass.

Mahogany Obsidian is a very opaque, black color with iron inclusions that create the reddish brown mahogany colored stripes and swirls that are in it. It is found in South America, Japan, Mexico, Afghanistan, and parts of the United States.

Mahogany Obsidian is very useful when used in meditation to heal emotional or soul pain. I recommend using a piece of clear Quartz as a final clearing when finishing your meditation. Like most of our stone friends, the best affect is gained from direct contact of holding or wearing it.

Some of man's oldest artifacts found have been made from Obsidian. Blades used for ritual purposes found in burial sites have been dated back to Palaeolithic times. It was believed they would drive out demons and protect those who had died on their next journey.
