This 71.71 carat 57x23 mm ( just over 2.25" long and 7/8" wide) carved rainbow obsidian has a subtle green flash across the face of the cabochon. Rainbow obsidian is a directional stone, depending on the angle it is viewed the strength of the color flash will vary. The color shift in this stone is very difficult to capture in photographs! Obsidian is a natural volcanic glass so handle with care! This cabochon is polished on both sides and would make a great focal stone for your designs!
