Purchase includes 1 gram of obsidian, roughly enhances 5 rings.
I use this in many of my rings and enjoy it each time.
It is easy to work with and have a finished appearance I really enjoy.
Makes for a beautiful inlay. Mixed it with the marble and black obsidian powder in a black ceramic blank. Turned out great. Obsidian eats a lot of sanding tubes, beware. And chips out easily. But with A little patience it turned out great.
Although it appears opaque it is quite translucent. Which makes for a interesting design when the glow powder shines through it. I would recommend adding this to a ring for some fun and intricate designs.
Worked great for me
