Dacite is a slow-cooled variety of obsidian, a natural volcanic glass. With a very consistent battleship gray color, dacite tumbles to an almost nonmetallic hematite look, sometimes with a faint striated color effect. Oversized stones such as these pose particular challenges during the polishing process. With a high-gloss polish, smoothed edges, and few imperfections, these large specimens are special.
Some believe that dacite has metaphysical properties that support breaking free from negativity (from self & others), moving into a more active state, and clearing one’s path back to true happiness.
