Golden Sheen Obsidian is generally a black or deep brown color that displays a golden chatoyance (cat's eye effect) when viewed in strong light.
This chatoyance is created from gas bubbles aligning across the layers of the gem during it's formation.
Thease are a 3/4 to 1 inch size.
Like most of the darker colored obsidians, this one resonates with the 1st Chakra and is a protective and shielding stone.
