Mahogany Obsidian is known for its swirls or mottlings of black and brown. These patterns are caused by its iron inclusions Magnetite and Hematite. Obsidian is derived from the name Obsuis, a Roman explorer who was believed to have discovered the rock in Ethiopia. Obsidian is an extrusive rock, meaning it forms when lava comes out of a volcano and solidifies above the Earth’s surface. It can form along the edges of a lava flow, a volcanic dome, or along a dike. It can also form when lava comes in contact with air or water.
Since Obsidian forms razor-sharp edges when it breaks, primitive tribes used it to create weapons and cutting tools in various shapes and sizes. Native Americans used it to make knives, scrapers, arrowheads, spear points, and other sharp tools. Due to its high luster, Ancient Aztecs and Greeks ground Obsidian to enhance its reflective abilities and used it for their mirrors.
According to Metaphysics: Mahogany Obsidian is used to cleanse and unblock the sacral chakra, the center of the emotional balance and creative energies. Healing the sacral chakra is said to reactivate one’s pleasures, playfulness, and sexuality. It also removes psychic blockages and assists in inducing spiritual awakening. Meditating with Mahogany Obsidian can erase unpleasant memories brought by abuse, humiliation, and shame.
