Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. With cristobalite inclusions

Obsidian is mineral-like. But not a true mineral. Because as a glass, it is not crystalline. In addition, its composition is too variable to be classified as a mineral. It is sometimes classified as a mineraloid. Though obsidian is usually dark in color. Similar to mafic rocks such as basalt, obsidian’s composition is extremely felsic. Obsidian consists mainly of SiO2 (silicon dioxide), usually 70% or more.

Cristobalite inclusions

Very few samples are nearly colorless. In some stones, the inclusion of small, white, radially clustered crystals of cristobalite inclusions in the black glass. Produce a blotchy or snowflake pattern: snowflake obsidian. Obsidian may contain patterns of gas bubbles. It remains from the lava flow. Aligned along layers. It created as the molten rock was flowing before being cooled. These bubbles can produce interesting effects. Such as a golden sheen: sheen obsidian. Inclusions of magnetite nanoparticles caused an iridescence. A rainbow-like sheen: rainbow obsidian.
