Oregon Fire Obsidian
No two stones alike!
I'd like to introduce a new variety of Obsidian the pair has discovered. It's a gem grade material called Fire Obsidian. This specific Fire Obsidian does not compare to anything else in the world. It's quality is much more than the finest of rainbow type obsidian from Oregon or Mexico. Below is a few freeform Cabachons recently made and displayed as examples of this superb material. Some samples I've seen would even compare to the finest Black Opals and the rarity of this material is beyond any opals!
The pictures below were taken under halogen lighting. These pictures are not altered in any way and the colors you see in the pictures are true for what the stone contains within.
