Like Rainbow Obsidian, it can show one the unexpected Light in darkness, but Peacock Obsidian is not exactly a stone of the depths. It is much more for entering the nearby planes of the astral, subtle and causal world. It is a tool for shamans and others who walk between worlds”-an ally for protection and clear-seeing, helping one to confidently negotiate the doorways between dimensions. Peacock Obsidian is also a stone that calls the worlds together for celebration. It is excellent for use in rituals and gatherings to which one wishes to call the ancestors, guides and helping spirits. In the other worlds.

Peacock Obsidian’s energies appear as undulating serpent-like patterns of vivid iridescent color, radiating in all directions from the physical stone.

Peacock Obsidian works well with Moldavite, Shaman Stone, Propheer Stone, Phenacite and Scolecite.
