Rainbow Obsidian was formed when lava once cooled at different times, and captured Magnetite nanoparticles within these layers. The Magnetite nanoparticles cause multicolored iridescence that shines bright when any light hits it. The best localities of Rainbow Obsidian are in Mexico, although a few newer locations in the USA have been discovered within the last couple years.
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.
We recommend using Rainbow Obsidian in conjunction with many other heart healing stones. Rose Quartz will enhance the speed and rate in which one recovers, while also replenishing one's energy field. Rhodonite helps push the trauma and emotional grief to the surface so that it may be dealt with. Eudialyte will help keep one grounded during this difficult time, while also rejuvenating one's life force energy. This stone in particular provides strength and reassurance that you WILL be able to get through whatever your going through. Moldavite will help with the initial unlocking of the heart, and will also provide transformative properties, which makes a transition like this easier for one to deal with. Black Kyanite will provide much needed protection for you and your fragile heart. Just being able to not absorb negative energies within your daily environments will have a tremendous effect on your rate of healing.
