11 Types of Obsidian Black

 , March 08, 2023
Obsidian black is a glossy black that might be described as bright black. This is based on the characteristic color of obsidian, a volcanic glass that is formed when lava extruded from a volcano cools very quickly. Obsidian is surrounded in much culture and lore as a glass that has been used for decorative and functional purposes since the stone ages. For example, obsidian was used in prehistoric arrowheads. Obsidian black is a common color name that is used for glossy glass-like black colors that are very dark. This is difficult to recreate in a flat digital color and is more associated with glossy and polished products. The following are common types of obsidian black.
