This rare red obsidian has a secret message for you beneath its polished domed top
It's rare to find a natural red obsidian. Most of the coloured obsidian out there is glass. If you're looking for coloured obsidian, ask a lot of questions and get it from a trusted source. This one came from a gemologist and qualified appraiser. It was crafted into the form of a large cabochon and it seems clear what is the "top" part of this stone - though the best part is on the back - a secret message in the letters that appear and change as you look at it. This is a scribal stone.
Obsidian vibrates to the number 1 and is the astrological Sign of Sagittarius - Elemental. Obsidian is a natural glass. Obsidian reflects ones flaws and promotes a clear picture of the changes which are necessary to eliminate the flaws. The energies of obsidian produce very blunt answers, focussing ones inner vision, stimulating a picture or vision of the required course of action. Obsidian is often used for scrying. Obsidian is an excellent grounding stone and provides for a connection from the base of the spine to the heart of the Earth. It is an excellent protective stone, stabilizing internal and external energies and gently protecting one from that which could bring physical and/or emotional harm. It provides a shield against negativity, transforming negative vibrations within an environment. Carrying/wearing obsidian further disperses those unloving thoughts which arise from within the self or are directed toward ones physical form. Obsidian is useful in healing, providing both the healer and subject with clarity with respect to both the cause and the amelioration of the dis-ease.
