Obsidian is the product of volcanic lava that has rapidly cooled in contact with water, creating this powerfully grounding stone that harmonizes the energies of fire and water. Used as a stone of protection dating back to the Old Stone Age, Obsidian is thought to invoke shamanic energy that can be utilized to move through deep soul healing. Obsidian is also referred to as the "mirror stone" for its glossy, reflective surface and its ability to help one look deep into their inner being.
This Pinecone has been anointed with our "Merkaba" emblem, cast in Sterling Silver. Merkaba - "Mer" meaning Light, "Ka" meaning Spirit, and "Ba" meaning Body - is a powerful icon historically known as the "Vehicle of Ascension". The Merkaba opens the mind to increased awareness and promotes deep conscious interconnection.
