This is a carved Mahogany Obsidian Horse Totem. Mahogany Obsidian is also known as "Buffalo Obsidian", and is a naturally occurring volcanic glass. Very cool patterns in this one. Black, shiny, Obsidian is accented by intricate reddish brown patterns.
The best quality obsidian often forms beneath the Earth's surface, around volcanic vents. Silica-rich magma squeezes into rock fractures or fissures to form layers and lenses of Obsidian that are relatively free of dirt, ash and other impurities that are commonly found around volcanoes. Sometimes, little air bubbles or faint ash deposits are left behind when the Obsidian cools, leaving small organic spots behind if they are close to the surface as the stone is polished. They can resemble pinpricks, fine lines, scuffs, or notches and you may be able to feel them subtly as you run a finger over them. ALL inclusions present come from 100% natural formations in the stone. I inspect each piece carefully and pick all my stones by energy FIRST! Much nicer 'in person' than the photos can show. Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
It weighs about 1.3oz and measures approx. just under 1 1/2" inches tall X 2 1/2" inches long. Code-011923-3697

Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."
Crystal skulls are tools of awareness and they can:
