Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth. When held to the light to light, shimmers of beautiful aurora colors can be seen within the stone. Transparent pale yellow-green to brownish obsidian from Peru is referred to as macusanite.
Obsidian is found in places that have experienced volcanic eruptions. Such places include Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Iceland, Italy, Kenya, New Zealand, Peru, and the United States.
