Gold Sheen Obsidian

A dull gold oval-shaped stone resting comfortably in a person's palm.  It is highly polished and reflects the overhead lights, and appears to have depth.

As viewed at the November 2014 meeting.

This is a gold sheen obsidian from the personal collection of our members M. Mueller and C. Maazouz. Obsidian is an igneous rock, which means it is formed from lava as it cools and solidifies. Obsidian is usually black. However, some types of obsidian have gas bubbles that create a gold or silver sheen like this.
