Rainbow Obsidian

Rainbow obsidian is a type of sheen obsidian. These colour sheen types of obsidian are formed by tiny bubbles being trapped inside the glass, the colour is created by the different minerals present as it cools. Rainbow obsidian as to be cut to very precise angles to achieve the best colour gradient, if slightly off it creates a more plain single colour sheen, such as green, purple or blue.
