obsidian is connected to the root chakra and has protective properties that make it perfect to add into any grounding practice or ritual. obsidian can be found in raw or polished states, with shiny stones acting as a scrying tool for those looking to discern messages or visions. if you’re not interested in divination, keep matte stones close to you in case you need something solid and reliable to hold onto in moments of stress or upset.
