Obsidian is Lisa's #1 Stone

There are thousands of crystals out there. What is your favorite? Mine is Obsidian. After I tell you about the powerful protector in black, it may become your favorite too.

Here are a few things you should know right now:



  • Obsidian cloaks your aura from the negative vibes that have overtaken the world.
  • Created from Lava, Obsidian stirs your passions so that you are erupting with energy.
  • Obsidian is a black beauty. Naturally glassy and classy, it also comes in other tones like mahogany, blue spider, and various colorful sheens.

  • When placed under a bright light, Obsidian often reveals a secret world of colors that leaves you awestruck.

  • Obsidian has always been one of the top 3 best-sellers at Satin Crystals, in both the stone and jewelry categories. That's because it protects healers as well as everyday people.

Why live in fear when Obsidian the Protector is here? I could sing more odes to Obsidian, and that's exactly what I will do. 

Do you benefit from the power of Obsidian?

If you find one or more of these statements to be true, you can benefit from the protective powers of majestic Obsidian:

  • I'm a reader or a psychic looking for the best gazing crystal
  • Obsidian jewelry would look great on me as they do their protective duties

  • I'm a healer who doesn't want to take on the burdens of my clients because it would prevent me from helping them

  • I'm looking for the ultimate Feng Shui protection stone

  • I want to feel the power of volcanoes in the palm of my hands
  • I want to manifest love

  • I prefer my Root chakra to be open and flowing rather than blocked and miserable
  • I need Obsidian for workplace protection

  • I want to mask my soul from negative energy so I attract positive people into my life instead of toxic ones

  • I feel stress and anxiety so I need an uplifting crystal that provides calm confidence

Obsidian: The Most Protective Crystal on Earth

Obsidian is the most powerful crystal on Earth. Rather than deflecting negative energy away from you like other protection stones, Obsidian has the unique ability to transform negative energy into positive vibes. It turns bad into good!

Obsidian is the best mask for your aura. This knight-in-shining-armor gemstone wards off the fear, evil, and anxiety that haunt your mind. You breathe easy once again.

Everyone has their opinion about what is the most effective protection stone. Based on my experiences and the stories I've heard from others, Obsidian remains my steadfast favorite.

Obsidian for Personal Protection

Protection stones have always been popular. They have been used throughout the ages and across civilizations. Who wouldn't want a shield around their aura to protect against the world's nastiness? It is even used to ward off evil forces lurking in the spirit realm.

Not only does it protect you energetically, but Obsidian was carved into physically protective tools by earlier civilizations. Obsidian arrowheads were used for hunting and defense.

These days, we focus on Obsidian's healing and metaphysical properties. Obsidian protects your aura from dark forces, ill-willed people, voodoo, spells, and psychic vampires. It keeps you unaffected by coworkers, family members, neighbors, and strangers who have ulterior motives.

Obsidian is your personal protector when you place it in the home, garden, office, and on your body as jewelry. Don't forget to travel with Obsidian. I never take a trip without my Obsidian bracelet.

Obsidian is such a strong protection gemstone that it seems you should have one with you at all times. And you should! 

Obsidian is the Protector in Black (and other colors too!)

Obsidian is created from volcanic glass. It is the result of magma hardening after a volcano erupts. Unlike most crystals, it has a natural glassy quality that makes it shiny. It is commonly black. Yet sometimes what seems black in ordinary lighting is holding a secret world of color and sheen within.

Here at Satin Crystals, we have offered a variety of Obsidian over the years. This includes Black Obsidian, Rainbow Obsidian, Silver Sheen Obsidian, Gold Sheen Obsidian, Mahogany Obsidian, Snowflake Obsidian, Midnight Lace Obsidian, Blue Spiderweb Obsidian, and Apache Tear Obsidian.

Of all these stunning beauties, my personal favorite is Rainbow Obsidian. What's your favorite?

Obsidian for Magical Manifestation

While the protective elements of Obsidian are its most popular appeal, it holds additional manifestation powers. Take full advantage of Obsidian and its benefits.

Did you know?

  • Famous fortune-teller Nostradamus gazed into an Obsidian mirror to have the future revealed to him.

  • Obsidian is a manifestation stone. It helps your dreams become reality.

  • While we usually think of pink stones summoning relationships, one of Obsidian's secret powers is that it attracts love. 

Really?! Find out more in the Obsidian Meanings article. And don't stop there. Enjoy the power of these Obsidian healing rituals:

  • Obsidian for Meditation: Protect your aura with Obsidian. If you are to run a marathon without stretching, you are at high risk of injury. Similarly, if you practice metaphysics without proper safety protocols, you are at high risk of infecting your soul. Never venture off without Obsidian.

Hello R.G.

Yes, it certainly can! Moldavite doesn’t work by itself, it works together with the power of your mind. As you already have the intention of positive changes with the Moldavite on its way, your mind is manifesting results.

We look forward to your feedback once the Moldavite arrives this week :)

R.G. - October 3, 2023

Ok thank you so much, I will go on website and find one, one more question can Moldavite start working with me even before I receive it? Because I have some weird stuff going this morning?

Lisa Satin - October 3, 2023

Hello R.G.! Thank you for telling us about the experiment you did with the Obsidian mirror. The red light you are seeing could be from the flashlight itself and not from the stone.

There are several types of Obsidians. Some are solid and some are translucent. So we would not know if your piece is real or fake based solely on the information you provided. It could be a translucent Midnight Lace Obsidian mirror that’s showing a red reflection of the light, or something fake altogether. If it was purchased from Satin Crystals, then it is 100% real.

Learn more about Obsidian in our comprehensive article:

R.G. - October 3, 2023

If I shine my cell phone flashlight thru a black obsidian mirror and the other side shows bright red, does that mean it’s fake?

Hi Tristan, here is an article that will help you out. Letting others hold your crystals is a personal preference:

Unfortunately, we do not make custom jewelry at this time. However if you need any of our current selection of bracelets restrung to your size, we can do that. We do recommend finding talented custom designers on for your custom needs.

Tristan - June 21, 2022

I happened upon your video looking for info on sharing my palm obsidian with other. Let them hold it?
I have a natural crystal that hasn’t been as strong since I chose it. Needs recharge? Should I not allow others
To touch it?
Do you make bracelets with specific stones I need? I think I know what I need, but do you also make recommendations? Thanks!

Sheila Satin - February 5, 2021

Hi Thomas, thanks for your email. We have our dedicated Obsidian vendors, but if you are looking to sell, I’m sure there is a market for it! You can try ebay, or maybe you have a similar site in Africa?

Thank you for thinking of us.

Hello Sheila,

My name is Thomas and I came across your video on youtube about Obsidian rocks and their spiritual benefits.

I must be honest and say I am new to crystals and their healing benefits. However, I have slowly become more interested in science.

While watching your video I realized I had seen this ‘Obsidian Rock’ many times when I was a child. (Now 30 years young) It then struck me that here in Kenya ( Africa ) we happen to have a significant amount of various types of Obsidian.

Snowflake Obsidian, Black Obsidian, and Mahogony Obsidian

These are the types I am sure we have but I can do my research and start looking for more. The obsidian has been formed along the Rift Valley. Which makes it millions of years old.

I was wondering if you think people would actually want some? I can send some pictures and samples if you would like.

Sheila Satin - November 22, 2020

Hi Mark, you are right, there is a lot of information out there in terms of protection crystals. That is because we are all different and what works for one person will not work for the other. The best answer we can give you is to trust your instincts and start experimenting first with the stones that most attract you. You can visit our Protection article for reference, but again, it’s up to you as far as how you use the stones in your own protective practices.

Mark - November 22, 2020

I read so many things on crystals and stones my head is spinning. What I would like to know is what crystals or stones to use for protection and staying safe from talking to haunted (spirited) dolls ??? Bad or evil energy a Big No No
