Gold Sheen Obsidian

Mexico’s obsidians are not just black–They also glimmer with rainbow colors, imitate the sensuousness of velvet, and now, a new look: Gold Sheen. Viewed from one direction, these pieces are a dark caramel brown. But turn them in the light, and immediately they shimmer with thousands of microscopic cool golden flecks. The dealer who found these said they are the best gold sheen obsidian he’s ever seen, probably because the chatoyance runs rich and bright all through the stones. These are big, glowing pieces, and the hand-carving is amazing–it creates plays of  light and shadow all over their multi-dimensional surfaces. They are beautiful, wearable sculptures.  Satin-finish backs.
