Rainbow Obsidian Meaning and Properties

Rainbow Obsidian is a form of Obsidian, a glassy silica-rich volcanic rock. The characteristic “Rainbow” effect, is a mixed color banding often comprising of blue, purple, violet, red, green, and gold, but can be more of a dull grey/silver, although not necessarily all the colors are present together. The banding effect is revealed when the Obsidian has been highly polished and when viewed in strong light, especially sunlight and the effect has been caused when the layers of molten lava cool at different rates or times.

The frequency of Rainbow Obsidian connects to the base chakra.

Rainbow Obsidian allows one to journey deep into one’s consciousness and to connect to one’s soul to discover deeply held emotional wounds and traumas so they can be acknowledged and released. Thus allowing one to be healed and to radiate and shine one’s soul’s “Spiritual Light”.

The energy of Rainbow Obsidian helps to cleanse and align the chakras by removing any blockages and thus helps to ground “Light” into one’s energy fields and physical body.

This beautiful rainbow banded effect Obsidian allows one to feel optimistic and can thus help with emotional traumas and depression.
