Obsidian Needles are volcanic glass that is rich in silica and are formed by the very rapid cooling of viscous acid lava. Obsidian needles are a naturally occurring fracture. Native Americans used these “needles” for leather work tools, hunting weapons, and cutting utensils. Obsidian is considered to be one of the main protection stones by many of the Native American tribes. The needles produce a variance of unique and peaceful sounds depending on the thickness, length and number of chimes.
