This rare formation of Obsidian, found primarily in Mexico and caused by trapped water vapor within the crystal, is felt to be more useful for self-reflective meditation when compared to the Black Obsidian so many use for protection and grounding. Gold Sheen Obsidian helps to prompt internal growth as well as help us to develop a better understanding of ourselves. It assists in realizing our full potential and strengths.
You're still going to benefit from the protective qualities of the stone, but its golden shimmer is said to help stimulate our sense of desire and accomplishment! In its ability to ground us, this crystal would be a great addition to any meditation or ritual focusing on applying oneself to their goals and bringing their dreams into reality. Let it also serve to assist you in exploring those dreams & your true desires, too.
