Black Obsidian History and Uses:
Black Obsidian derives it name from an ancient Roman explorer called Obsius who was given a black glass sphere from a volcano by an Ethiopian woman called Xenia. It is also called the “wizard stone” because it has been used since ancient times in many magical practices. Polished Obsidian mirrors were used for scrying and Nostradamus is reputed to have used a Black Obsidian sphere for scrying. It is an opaque volcanic glass that can be black, brown grey or green, the translucent variety from Arizona is referred to as Apache Tears. Black Obsidian has been used since Paleolithic times for making tools and weapons because it holds a sharp edge.
