Fire Obsidian is a bright fiery flash, which can sometimes contain other bright colors.  It tends to run along a strand, and takes a lot of practise, patience, and skill to cut slabs and cabs of it.  It is one that is recommended for lapidary veterans.  Fire Obsidian gets the color and flash from magnetite, which are tiny microscopic metal flecks, that are embedded within the volcanic glass. Fire Obsidian is easily one of the most rare forms of obsidian known to exist.  Since fire obsidian gets its color from magnetite, it does require bright light, with the stone turned the right direction, to get the color to light up.  Under normal conditions, it will appear black.  This is one of the reasons it is recommended only someone familiar with it works with it.  


Photos are generally taken wet to simulate what a polish may look like.

I do my best to represent the stones with photos.  I don't enhance photos, though sometimes brightness and contrast on monitors may differ, and while a photo may look just like the rock on my end, it will sometimes appear brighter or duller on your end.  I run my monitor at default brightness and contrast settings.  All rough photos are generally taken wet with water unless otherwise specified.
