Mexican Velvet Obsidian is one of my personal favorites in the Obsidian World! Velvet Obsidian has a nice velvety display of flashes of color, often green, gold, and purple. It makes some amazing cabs, and can be loads of fun to cut and work with! This material use to be shipped in by the dump truck, however, that was around the 1960s and modernly the mine is same as tapped out, and very little of it makes its way around. The majority that does is old stock material! Velvet Obsidian is one of those that you want to grab when you see it, as its not one you see very often, and it sure is gorgeous!
This huge slab is showing some crazy flash all the way around! Even indoors in low light this shows its color and beauty! It is by far one of the best velvet slabs I have ever seen, and it will make a killer display or tons of stunning and beautiful cabochons! This is certainly a large rare slab you won't want to miss out on! You may never see another slab of velvet this large and filled with this much beauty!
