Finding Treasures: Gold Sheen Obsidian
As I’ve mentioned before, I love going to thrift stores and garage sales. Not too long ago I saw this interesting black ball at a garage sale. It had a few scratches and a small crack, but it was otherwise in great condition. I was unsure as to whether it was a stone or glass until I took it to a gemstone shop, where it was confirmed to be a gold sheen obsidian.
Gold sheen obsidian is another chatoyant stone. When viewed in the sun or under light, the gold shimmery sparkles are revealed. known to have metaphysical qualities of protection (ridding of negative energy) and bringing out hidden talents or skills. I was immediately attracted to this stone, and I feel that the Universe sent it to me.
The value of this stone is about $200. I paid $2. (I need to take photos of this under studio lighting, because it reflects everything in the environment!)
To give you an idea of how large this ball is, I took a photo with a pocket camera next to it.
