Obsidian, also known as 'volcanic glass' is a felsic, extrusive igneous rock. Crystal growth is minimal / absent within obsidian due to rapid solidification rates which inhibit crystal growth thus giving the rock a glassy appearance. In some instances very fine crystals may be present showing some sort of alignment with the original lava flow. Each section is made to 30 microns thickness. The glass is 46 x 27 mm in size, supplied in a protective card sleeve with a label, ideal for microscopy.
