Obsidian from Hawaiian volcanoes is a rare commodity since our volcanoes have very little silica in their flow.
Archaeologists have identified Puâ€™u Waâ€™a Waâ€™a as the lone mount having obsidian today. I have been told of an obsidian field in Kawaihae on land that used to belong to a former sea captain in the days of Kamehameha I. Obsidian from Hawaiian volcanoes is black, however, other volcanoes produce blue and green.
More commonly we have volcanic glass (the glassy rind that can be seen on pahoehoe flows). This was used by ancient Hawaiians as cutting tools (similar to Native Americans).
Metaphysically, obsidian is known to be protective, inducing the wearer to honesty, sincerity and truth. Obsidian is known to bring out the warrior energy of the wearer. Based on the usage by Native Americans and ancient Hawaiians, they must have known this too.
