Rainbow Obsidian was formed when lava once cooled at different times, and captured Magnetite nanoparticles within these layers. The Magnetite nanoparticles cause multicoloured iridescence that shines bright when any light hits it.
Rainbow Obsidian is a stone that activates our root chakra and pulls us back down to earth. It's a stone that can be used to help heal a broken heart, provide support for someone in grief, or simply offer up an abundance of love and happiness to someone in need. This stone is here to hold you when you need it most, while also giving you back strength to help overcome these heartaches so that you may begin to heal. Once one has accepted what has happened, only then can they move on and begin to heal and rejuvenate their energies. The Council recommends carrying a piece on you daily if you are struggling emotionally and meditating with it when your most comfortable.
