This is a fine specimen of obsidian from California, featuring very shiny midnight black volcanic glass that was lava that cooled quickly when it poured into water. Interspersed in the obsidian are round vugs (pockets) that are lined with the rare minerals christobalite and fayalite in a bright white and light gray. These create a dramatic contrast with the dark black obsidian that is very striking.
