Obsidian is the result of volcanic lava coming in contact with water. Often the lava pours into a lake or ocean and is cooled quickly. This process produces a glassy texture in the resulting rock. Iron and magnesium give the obsidian a dark green, brown, blue or black colour. Obsidian has been used by ancient people as a cutting tool, for weapons, and for ceremonial purposes and is sometimes found by archaeologists in excavations.

These bubbles can produce interesting effects such as a golden sheen, known as Gold Sheen Obsidian or a rainbow sheen called Rainbow Obsidian.
