For Valentines Day my husband bought me one of the 25 lb mixed obsidian specials. Obsidian is his favorite stone. It arrived today and the box was packed so full it was begining to split. The post master helped me tape it back together so I could carry it to the car. There's some really nice big chunks in there and only one has a serious fracture that I can see. If I pry it apart I'll still wind up with two nice sized chunks to work with. It was supposed to be mixed from different kinds including gold sheen and silver sheen but all the chunks have brown streaks so I guess it's all mahogany. No problem. I love mahogany obsidian anyway. All in all I'd say it's a really good buy at $7 plus $8.10 shipping.

jakesrocks: In the mid 80's up here today. Wish the Canadians would keep their damned forest fire smoke up there. Only 3 miles visibility down here, and you can smell the smoke. Hmmmm, smells like Canadian bacon.
