Black Star de la India - Sophie's in Jupiter

Black Star from India


Origin of the Black Star of India

Black Star stone is a variety of Indian obsidian, a volcanic stone that forms from the rapid solidification of lava when exposed to cold air. Black Star obsidian is characterized by having an intense and shiny black color, with golden sparkles that look like stars inside.


In astrology, this stone is associated with the signs of Scorpio and Capricorn. It is believed that it helps strengthen the will and enhance the energy of the person who wears it, and healing and protective properties are also attributed to it.

It has been used since ancient times by different cultures and civilizations. In ancient Mesopotamia, for example, it was used to make weapons and tools, and in the Mayan civilization it was used to make jewelry and artistic objects.

Today, it continues to be used in jewelry and as an ornamental stone, and is also used in healing therapies and spiritual practices.
