Obsidian is one of the most potent natural sources of protective and cleansing energies. Obsidian is formed when a volcano erupts and sends super-hot magma up through the Earth’s crust. The hot lava comes into contact with groundwater, freezing it so quickly that no crystal structure can form. Instead, it cools as glass and breaks away from the mountain in a fast-flowing stream called obsidian. The property that makes obsidian so unique is its chemical composition: it’s made almost entirely of silica, which is an extremely potent conductor of energy. Its molecular structure is also very dense, which gives it such a high level of potency that it’s been used as a way to unblock negative energy in other spaces.
In fengshui, Obsidian is the perfect accessory for boosting your personal energy and confidence, ability to clear negative energy and restore balance. We refer to this as “purifying” the space or “cleansing” the area. This is because obsidian absorbs negativity and transforms it into positive energy instead.
