Silver ring with silver obsidian.

OBSIDIAN

Obsidian owes its current name to Obsius, the Roman citizen who, as Pliny tells us by calling it lapis obsianus or obsidianus, discovered it in today’s Ethiopia. Black in color and generally opaque, it can also take on a silver (silver obsidian) or white-gray (obsidian snow flake) color. On the walls of the Pompeii ruins, many mirrors have been found made of this precious material (home of the Ephebe, Pompeii). Obsidian was valuable material also used for statues, objects and gems.
