Silver Sheen Obsidian is a black or deep brown Obsidian displaying a silver-gray iridescent sheen when polished and viewed in strong light, caused by gas bubbles aligning across the layers during formation. Silver Sheen Obsidian is believed to bring one “advantage” throughout life. It improves perception, sharpens the senses and intellect, promotes articulate communication to others, and helps keep personal likes and dislikes from affecting rational decision-making. A perfect tool for gazing, Silver Sheen adds the mystery of lunar energies in its ability to mirror the inner being. It is especially beneficial for stimulating one to see themselves as others see them, even if the reality is unflattering. It helps one to understand one’s behaviors and to refine undesirable traits, enhancing patience and perseverance when needed. Silver Sheen Obsidian is a marvelous stone for out-of-body journeying as it provides a strong connection between the physical and astral bodies, and assures a safe soul return. Silver Sheen Obsidian is also a soothing stone for those who have issues with a possessive mother, whether she is still alive or remains in memory.
