Obsidian is a highly reflective stone that makes a very powerful mirror. It's believed to reflect what is truly in a persons' soul. The blackness of this crystal helps us reach deeper into the hidden parts of our mind and bring out the light. Obsidian tends to provide very blunt and sometimes intense visions so it's not recommended for everyone.Crystal charging plates are one of our favourite crystal shapes to work with. You can use plates to charge spellwork, other crystals, divination and ritual tools with the shielding and protective energy of Obsidian.
