Black Star de la India - Sophie's in Jupiter

Indian Blackstar


Black Star stone is a variety of obsidian from India, 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 brilliant black color, with golden flashes that look like stars inside.


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

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 is still used in jewelry and as an ornamental stone, and is also used in healing therapies and spiritual practices.
