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.


Peanut Obsidian

Rare Mexican Peanut Obsidian Slab, 142 Grams

Peanut Obsidian

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

This is a slice of a rare material known as Peanut Obsidian, from Mexico. It is actually perlite - a volcanic glass, closely related, but not exactly obsidian. The chatoyant radiating red-orange spherules in it create some wonderful potential for amazing cabs or even as a specimen slab. From what we've read, the material apparently can fracture easily, so stabiizing it would be prudent to avoid potential loss, especially if cabbing. This piece is approximately 4 1/2" x 4 1/4" x 2.2 mm thick, and weighs 142 grams, or 5 ounces. USPS First Class shipping for less is available upon request.

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

This is another slice of Peanut Obsidian, from Mexico. It measures roughly 4" x 2" x 6.8-7.3 mm thick and weighs 2.4 ounces, or 69 grams. The material, from Mexico, is actually perlite - a volcanic glass, closely related to, but not exactly obsidian. It has radiating red-orange spherules that have chatoyance in them. Wonderful display piece for collectors of specimen slabs, but also possible for some amazing cabochons if preferred. It tapers in thickness on one side from the rough edge of the rock (as in main photo) so the flat surface is less than on the other side (2nd photo). We've read that the material can fracture easily, so stabiizing was recommended to help avoid potential loss when cutting it like for cabochons. USPS First Class shipping for less is available upon request.

Peanut Obsidian

Rare Mexican Peanut Obsidian Slab, 184 Grams

Peanut Obsidian

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

This is another slab of Peanut Obsidian, a rare type of volcanic glass from Mexico. It is actually perlite - closely related to obsidian. This one is approximately 4 1/2" x 4 1/4" and 7-8 mm thick. It weighs 6.5 ounces, or 184 grams. Those radiating red-orange spherules have a chatoyance. There are some fractures (see last two photos, taken dry), and while it overall looks like a solid piece, the material apparently can fracture easily so stabiizing it would be recommended to avoid potential loss, especially if cabbing. USPS First Class shipping for less is available upon request.

Peanut Obsidian

Small But Awesome Mexican Peanut Obsidian Slab, 30 Grams

Peanut Obsidian

[2] [3] [4] [5]

This is just a very small piece of Peanut Obsidian, from Mexico. (Material is actually perlite - a volcanic glass, closely related, but not exactly obsidian.) This is a beautiful little piece. But if the thought is for a small cab, the side shown in the main photo would probably have to be the back. It measures apx 1 1/2" x 1 1/8" on the widest surface side, and less on the other because of the tapering edge of the rock. Where flat, it is mostly 7.5 mm thick and weighs 1 ounce, or 30 grams. Please note that this material apparently can fracture easily, so stabiizing it would be recommended to avoid potential loss, especially if cabbing. USPS First Class shipping for less is available upon request.

Peanut Obsidian

Rare Mexican Peanut Obsidian Slab, 215 Grams

Peanut Obsidian

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

This slice of Peanut Obsidian is thicker than most of the slabs we have, it's 8.4 to 9.4 mm thick. This piece is approximately 4 1/2" x 4" and weighs 7.6 ounces, or 215 grams. The material comes from Mexico and is actually perlite - a volcanic glass, closely related, but not exactly obsidian. The chatoyant radiating red-orange spherules in it create some wonderful potential for amazing cabs or even as a specimen slab. This slice overall looks pretty solid but we've read that it can fracture easily so stabilizing was recommended. USPS First Class shipping for less is available upon request.

Peanut Obsidian

Small Rare Mexican Peanut Obsidian Slab, 30 Grams

Peanut Obsidian

Click image for slide show

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

This is a small slice of the rare Peanut Obsidian, from Mexico. This piece is roughly 2 1/2" x 1" x 7-8 mm thick, weighing 1 ounce, or 30 grams. As already mentioned, the material is actually perlite - a volcanic glass, closely related, but not exactly obsidian. This is a small piece, probably not more than a small cab, but perhaps best as a specimen slab. The main photo shows the largest area of flat side, while the other side has the tapering rough edge of the top - you can get an idea of that in the 2nd and 4th photos. The material apparently can fracture easily, so stabiizing it would be recommended, especially if your thought is for cabbing. USPS First Class shipping for less is available upon request.

Gold Sheen Obsidian Rough

1 lb Gold Sheen Obsidian Rough (@ $9.00/lb)

Gold Sheen Obsidian Rough

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

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.

U.S. shipping cost: $8.00

Gold Sheen Obsidian Rough   Item: 4128   Price: $9.00  

Quantity is limited; please contact us to pull pieces for you.


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.
