Rainbow Obsidian, also called Heaven Eye, is a black or deep brown Obsidian displaying iridescent bands of red, blue, gold, violet, and/or green when polished and exposed to bright light.
The color layers are caused by the refraction of microscopic bubbles and inclusions such as magnetite. Rainbow Obsidian is gentler than Black Obsidian, with strong protective properties.
It is an excellent tool for facilitating a purposeful search of our psyche to find the root causes of emotional traumas and distresses and to release ties with the past. It is ideal for dissolving outmoded genetic patterns and karma, severing the cords of old love, and releasing hooks that others have left in the heart. Rainbow Obsidian brings hope, illumination, and energy into the most blocked and stagnant areas of the emotional body, and grounds spiritual Light into the aura and physical body. It is a great support for alleviating depression, mood swings, despair, or paralyzing fears.
Rainbow Obsidian helps to cleanse and align all chakras, and worn as a pendant absorbs negative energy from the aura, drawing off pain and stress from the physical body. It is considered a “stone of pleasure,” bringing gratification and enjoyment to one’s life, helping one to be optimistic and engaged in the world. Use it for meditation, in stone layout sessions, and as an aid for focus and memory.
