Obsidian Crystal

Best Uses for Obsidian | Goddess Witchcraft Crystal Guide

Obsidian is molten lava that cooled rapidly and didn’t crystallise.  It’s glass-like in appearance, and comes in several different colour variations.  For the GOT (Game of Thrones) fans out there, dragon glass is black obsidian.

Emotional Healing Uses of Obsidian

Obsidian is a powerful truth-enhancing stone.  It has been known to force secrets into the open, so keep this in mind while using it!  It encourages self-reflection and personal growth.  Obsidian is also a powerful protection stone that blocks negative energy.

Physical Healing Uses of Obsidian

Detoxification is a key healing function of Obsidian. It promotes digestion and detoxifies the body.  It will also help to relieve joint pain, and cramps.

Practical Uses of Obsidian

  • Place a piece on your desk at work if a colleague is bullying you.
  • Place it under your pillow to draw out stress.
  • Carry it with you if you’re meeting with someone you feel isn’t being honest with you.
