Obsidian is natural glass. It is formed from volcanic lava that cooled too quickly for significant crystallization to occur. Hence it is amorphous, with no cleavage. Fracture is conchoidal. Obsidian is usually black, but brown, gray and more rarely, red, blue and green material is found. Some inclusions give Obsidian a metallic sheen, while internal bubbles or crystals (called crystallites) produce a ‘snowflake’ effect.
