Blue obsidian is known for it’s beautiful blue color and it’s ability to reflect the light in a unique way.
Volcanic glasses are created when molten rock or magma containing silicon dioxide cools quickly forming crystals. This rapid cooling causes the formation of “quench” crystals which can form into interesting shapes resulting in beautiful patterns within some types of volcanic glass such as blue obsidian. These quench crystals grow at faster rates than other crystalline minerals creating a unique look for these stones known by many collectors today. The most common colors range from black, dark brown/gray with lighter blues mixed throughout giving it an overall turquoise appearance due to its high silica content.

Afterwards, you will need to wipe down each crystal with a clean cloth until all salt residue has been removed from them. It is important that you do not use soap when cleaning your blue obsidian stones as they contain oils within their structure which can be washed away by detergents such as soaps. Once cleaned you should store them somewhere where they won’t come into contact with other objects because this may contaminate them again if done regularly over time since these oil residues are hard to remove completely once contaminated.
