OBSIDIAN

Obsidian is a naturally occuring glass, commonly silicon dioxide, formed within volcanic lava.  It is found globally in localities where there is, or has been, volcanic activity and forms at the edges of lava flows where the material is prone to more rapid cooling. As with most glass, Obsidian can be brittle, but its amorphous, non-crystalline structure gives rise to many attractive and unique features.
