Cobble Creek: 1 lb of Black Obsidian Rough from Mexico
Each pieces is 1" to 3" on average. Each pound will include anywhere from 7 - 10 pieces. This rough is good for jewelry, crafts, gifts, collecting or tumbling. Or for those teachers out there looking to complete a lesson on igneous rocks, this is one of the must haves for providing a hands on experience for their students.
Each pound will be a random pull from our bulk supply.
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.
Obsidian 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, where the chemical composition (high silica content) induces a high degree of viscosity and polymerization of the lava. The inhibition of atomic diffusion through this highly viscous and polymerized lava explains the lack of crystal growth. Obsidian is hard and brittle and therefore fractures with very sharp edges. In the past it was used to manufacture cutting and piercing tools and it has been used experimentally as surgical scalpel blades.
