Black Obsidian Sphere - Revealer of Truth

Diameter about 50mm

Obsidian is lava glass formed by nature, and is created when molten lava solidifies so quickly that the formed rock does not have time to crystallize properly, but remains amorphous, i.e. uncrystallized. Obsidian is typically black or dark gray in color, but other colors also occur. For centuries, obsidian has been made into tools, ornaments and even surgical instruments due to its sharp and durable properties. Many cultures have also considered obsidian to be a carrier of powerful energies and therefore used it for ceremonial purposes or as decorations.


Symbol meaning:

Obsidian is considered a stone without boundaries or limitations. It is thought to work extremely quickly and with great force. Its truth-enhancing and reflective qualities are merciless in revealing faults, weaknesses and blockages. Obsidian is considered useful for therapists and counselors because it not only facilitates getting to the root of the problem, but also clears released energies. Because obsidian is so effective at absorbing negative energies, it is essential to clean the stone under running water whenever it has been used for such a purpose.

Black obsidian is considered a very powerful and creative stone. Self-control increases with the use of this stone, as black obsidian makes you face your true self, taking you deep into your subconscious in the process. It highlights hidden factors, bringing imbalances and shadow qualities to the surface for release. It clarifies all kinds of negative energies so that they can be fully experienced and thus released and integrated in the right way into one's own life or self.

Black obsidian is also a protector. It is thought to ward off negativity and dispel unloving thoughts. It makes it easier to let go of old love objects and offers support in times of change.

Black obsidian is also believed to have the gift of divination. Black obsidian spheres have been considered powerful aids for meditation and scrying, but should only be used by those who are able to consciously process what they see and use it for the highest good of all. Clear quartz is thought to help ground and verbalize the information being revealed.

In practices related to healing, black obsidian is used placed on the navel, with the purpose of grounding spiritual energy into the physical body. When held in front of the "third eye" for a short time, it is thought to break down mental barriers and dissolve various mental conditionings.

 The symbolism of the sphere shape

The shape of the sphere has many symbolic meanings in different cultures and contexts. In general, the sphere symbolizes wholeness, perfection and harmony. Its round shape suggests continuity, eternal movement and cyclicality, making it a symbol of timelessness and eternity. The sphere also represents unity and balance, as each point is equidistant from the center.

In many cultures and philosophical traditions, the sphere has been used to symbolize the soul or spirit. The sphere can be seen to reflect the sacred and limitless nature of the soul. Its symmetrical shape reflects the eternal existence of the soul.

The spherical shape of the crystals is also believed to radiate energy evenly in all directions. This form is thought to act as a time-opening window into the past or future, moving energy through time and offering a glimpse of what is to come or what has been. Looking into the crystal ball has long been one way to utilize this symbolism and to seek contact with higher dimensions or to get intuitive information about the past or the future.


Ritual use:

The black obsidian sphere can be used on an altar, as a portable amulet, as a meditation aid or as part of a crystal grid, for example. Below is an example of a ritual where one of the central elements is a black obsidian sphere.

 Ritual steps:

  • Preparation : Create a sacred space where you can focus. Light a candle and let it create a gentle light around you. Take a deep breath and let your body and mind relax.
  • Start : Sit comfortably and take the obsidian sphere in your hand. Close your eyes and focus on your breath, becoming aware of presence.
  • Setting an intention : Focus on what kind of truth you are looking for in yourself. For example, you can choose to explore certain emotions, fears or challenges, or who you really are at your core.
  • "Scrying" with an obsidian spehre : Slowly open your eyes and observe the obsidian sphere. Look unhurriedly and calmly into the depths of the sphere, let your thoughts flow freely and observe any images, symbols or sensations that may arise. Allow your imagination to take you deeper. Be open to receiving messages and intuitive insights.
  • Reflection and Integration : When you are ready, close your eyes and consciously return to the present moment. Write down your observations and reflect on what you experienced. What did you learn? What truth did you find? Remember to be gentle and compassionate with yourself, no matter what your experience.
  • Thank you and closing : Thank yourself and the obsidian sphere for this ritual and experience. Extinguish the candle and let go of the ritual, knowing that you can always return to this processing if needed.
