OBSIDIAN AND GOLDSTONE ROUGH AND SLABS

Go to INDEX, LARGE SLABS, DOLLAR SLABS, ROUGH BY THE POUND, PREVIOUS, NEXT.

Obsidian is volcanic glass, formed by the rapid cooling of lava flows. Goldstone is not a natural stone at all, but a sparkly, man-made glass. We have slabs of Obsidian and a limited amount of both in the rough and unpolished form. We've seen many beautiful projects from this material, such as cabochons, spheres, rounded sculptures, and arrowheads which have been flint-knapped. We charge one shipping cost for all that will safely fit in a Small Priority Flat Rate box, or padded envelope (up to 4 pounds), and will ship to the U.S. as well as Internationally. Combined purchases over 4 pounds may require extra shipping. See our Store Policies for full details.

Sorry - no Peanut Obsidian rough or slabs right now. (See below for Obsidan rough.)

This piece of Obsidian has losts of beautiful shimmer of gold in it - not real gold, but known as 'Gold Sheen.' The rough material has to be cut at just the right angle in order to capture that sheen in it. And when you move it slightly in the light, you can see it. Very striking! It measures about 3" x 2 1/2" x 1/4" (6.3-6.4 mm) and weighs 51.5 grams, or 1.8 ounces. See the sheen better here in this YouTube video. First Class Shipping is available for less upon request.

Obsidian Rough

1 Lb Black and Black with Mahogany Obsidian Rough ($4/lb)

This is for 1 pound only of black and mahogany Obsidian rough pieces. In this batch, one piece that looks black might also have the splashes of the mahogany coloring as well, or could be all black. It's possible a piece we think is black turns out to be gold, silver or rainbow sheen, though no promises on these. Some pieces have a skin, while others are just rough chunks. A few have been sliced, though most are uncut. A one pound order could be smaller pieces, or even just one piece that weighs a minium of one pound. If you have a specific request for size, please contact us. The pieces in the photos are examples only and were wet in all the photos.

This is Gold Sheen Obsidian rough pieces, selling by the pound. You might not see any of the sheen in most of these photos, and before cleaning off the dust on this batch, we thought it was just Mahogany Obsidian. But a little water and movement in the sunshine and we realized it was actually Maghoany with Gold Sheen - awesome material, as you can tell by the 2nd photo of a large sliced piece of it (watch a YouTube video of it)! The material must be cut at the correct angle for the sheen to be visible. The pieces in the photos are the batch we will pull from but you may or may not receive any specific piece you see here. Further, not all pieces show the sheen so we want to pull specific pieces per order that will ensure what you get will have the sheen in it. Please note that this material is volcanic glass and easily cuts like glass, so care should be taken when handling or working with it.
