Rainbow Obsidian is a captivating stone that appears black at first glance but reveals brilliant rainbow colors under light. This mesmerizing effect comes from microscopic bubbles trapped within its volcanic glass structure during rapid cooling.

Rainbow Obsidian has deep cultural significance among Native American tribes who believed it had protective powers against negative energies. It's also known as "Heaven Eye" because of its iridescent quality that symbolizes spiritual insight.
