Silver sheen obsidian is a type of volcanic glass that exhibits a silver-like sheen or shimmer caused by the presence of tiny gas bubbles trapped within the material.

  1. Color: The base color of silver sheen obsidian is typically black, but it displays a striking silver sheen or iridescence when polished and exposed to light.

  2. Hardness: Obsidian has a relatively high hardness, typically around 5 to 5.5 on the Mohs scale, making it suitable for use in jewelry and ornamental objects. However, it can still be scratched by harder materials.

  3. Clarity: Obsidian is generally opaque, meaning it does not allow light to pass through. However, the silver sheen effect gives it a unique appearance that can vary in intensity depending on the specimen.

  4. Luster: Silver sheen obsidian has a glassy luster when polished, giving it a smooth and reflective surface.

  5. Density: The density of obsidian varies depending on its composition and the presence of impurities, but it typically ranges from 2.4 to 2.6 grams per cubic centimeter.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: In metaphysical belief systems, silver sheen obsidian is often associated with protection, reflection, and insight. It is believed to have grounding properties that help dispel negative energy and shield against psychic attacks. The silver sheen is thought to enhance intuition and promote self-reflection, allowing one to gain deeper insights into oneself and the world around them.
