The gourd is a symbol of good luck in many cultures. Their dried shells useful for carrying and storing liquids, seeds, and medicines. Over time, the gourd itself began to represent many things. The numerous seeds inside represented fertility and the shape of the gourd represented the meeting of heaven and earth. Seeds that were stored inside the gourd were said to grow easier in the spring than seeds that weren't stored in gourds - attributing happiness and success to the gourd's symbolism as well.

Obsidian is a talisman of those who dare to see…the past, the future, or one’s own inner demons and darkest truths. It is no ordinary stone, but nature’s glass formed from volcanic lava and hardened so quickly it formed no crystalline structure. It has no boundaries or limitations, and works rapidly with great power. Its edge can be razor sharp, and its dark, glossy surface polished into cold, hard glass, a “mirror stone” for those prepared to look deep into the inner being, the subconscious, to reveal one’s shadow self…flaws, weaknesses, fears, all. Nothing is hidden from Obsidian.

Ruled by the planet Pluto, Black Obsidian is a teacher stone and could be deemed the “Warrior of Truth.” It is the most powerful of the obsidians and does not cater to the ego; rather it exposes darkened areas of the subconscious to force one to face one’s true self. It assists in examining unresolved issues and harmful attitudes inhibiting one’s personal and spiritual growth.
