Obsidian - Born from the earth out of pure fire

Obsidian went through an extremely fast transformation, born from the earth out of pure fire, it is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock, which is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth.  



 

 

It is commonly found within the margins of rhyolitic lava flows known as obsidian flows. These flows have a high content of silica, which gives them a high viscosity. The high viscosity inhibits atomic diffusion through the lava, which inhibits nucleation of mineral crystals. Together with rapid cooling, this results in a natural glass forming from the lava. Obsidian is found in locations which have undergone rhyolitic eruptions.

 

 

 

 

Obsidian is extremely rich in silica (about 65 to 80 percent), is low in water, and has a chemical composition similar to rhyolite. Obsidian is hard, brittle, and amorphous; it therefore fractures with sharp edges, which is slightly harder than window glass.


 

 

 

The obsidians of Mount Hekla in Iceland, the Eolie Islands off the coast of Italy, and Obsidian Cliff in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, U.S, are all well-known occurrences.

 

At same time, obsidian is also spreading around the world, it can be found in Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Australia,Canada, Chile, Georgia, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Scotland, The Canary Islands, and Turkey.

 

 



 

Born from the earth out of pure fire. Nothing is hidden from Obsidian.
