Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass. Obsidian may contain patterns of gas bubbles remaining from the lava flow, aligned along layers created as the molten rock was flowing before being cooled. These bubbles can produce interesting effects such as a golden sheen (sheen obsidian)
Obsidian is found in locations which have undergone rhyolitic eruptions. It can be found in Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Australia, Canada, Chile, Georgia, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Scotland, Turkey and the United States.
This beautiful handmade traditional 5 decade rosary handcrafted by local artisan in Oklahoma is made of large 10mm non-faceted (smooth) stones. The Large Crucifix measures 2 1/8 inches and is really stunning. Finished with a beautiful Miraculous Medal (representation), this rosary is a real heirloom. The rosary is large enough to hang on the wall for display or carry and use. I've been told the larger beads are more comfortable for arthritic hands to hold. This Rosary comes with a lifetime repair warranted and a velveteen carrying bag. A handmade charm saying "hand made" in the rosary color will be attached to the bag.
