This crystal has been charged with subtle energy from the Ancient Crystal Skull known as SYNERGY.
This is a carved Silver Sheen Obsidian ceremonial Athame, or dagger. Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison.It is mainly deep, dark, black but has pretty golden metallic sheen/shimmer throughout that becomes visible from different angles. So gorgeous!The tip is SHARP - handle with care!
There is a small "owie" on the corner of the handle, shown in a close-up photo with an ORANGE ARROW pointing to it. This is on the side with the sheen inclusions visible. The price has been discounted accordingly.
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 small fine lines or tiny indents/pinpricks and you can feel them subtly as you run a finger over them. Besides the aforementioned "owie" ALL inclusions present in this piece at 100% natural. It's much nicer 'in person' than the photos show, I guarantee it.
It weighs about 4.4oz and measures approximately 7 1/8" inches long X 1 5/16" inches wide at the widest point (top of the handle). Code-02

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."
