Obsidian, Prehistory’s Necessity and Today’s Elegance
Obsidian is the rock which primitive human make the very first tools with it. it is a volcanic glassy rock that breaks with a conchoidal fracture (on the other hand, it chips like a glass) that causes a sharp edge in breaking point.
This sharpness helped primitive human to make some tools, specially some knifes, arrow heads, spearhead and picks. These tools gave human a big competency to other competitor hunters.
Obsidian Lithology: Obsidian is an igneous rock that forms when molten rock material cools so rapidly that atoms are unable to arrange themselves into a crystalline structure. It is an amorphous material known as a "mineraloid." The result is a volcanic glass with a smooth uniform texture.
Obsidian is mostly black, a dark deep pure black. In some cases, it has with golden/silverfish sheen caused by light reflecting from inclusions of mineral crystals, or gas. These coloured specimens are known as "golden obsidian”
As Obsidian is a type of "glass," it is chemically unstable. By passing the time and in case of some circumstances, part of it start to crystallize. The crystallization process forms radial clusters of white or grey cristobalite crystals which create "snowflake obsidian". This type of Obsidian also very popular for jewellery.
