Blue or green obsidian
« on: December 12, 2018, 06:41:50 PM »
Hello all. Im currently in bali and have come across the most beautiful blue stone the locals are calling blue obsidian. Do any of you know anything about it? Is it genuine? It is quite translucent. Cheers wallie

A few years back I bought some lovely green obsidian for fun, The dealer explained it was splashes that occured during glass manufacture.
