Re: blue obsidian is ther such a thing?

I wanted to through in my opinion, yes there is such a thing as blue obsidian. There's a wonderful site for multi-colored obsidian in the Davis Creek area of N. California. I've been there once. The blue is supposed to be there, but quite hard to find from what I've heard. There's also a pink variety, rainbow, gold sheen, black, and mahogany in the area.

Just take a look at the piece in direct sunlight, if you can. Hard to see in indoor light. If the piece has any laminations, or layers, look at the rock, in the light, perpendicular to the layers. That should help you see the colors.
