Gold Sheen Obsidian Tumblestones
These are gorgeous gold sheen Obsidian tumblestones, with a lovely glittering optical effect under the surface. This effect is caused by gas bubbles aligning in a specific way in the lava before it solidified to become Obsidian.
These tumblestones measure approximately 20-30MM wide each and are available in two quality grades.
These stones make an interesting contrast piece with lighter stones, especially clear or white stones. Because of their interesting visual sheen, people tend to like handling them and we would recommend against storing them anywhere inaccessible like in a fish tank.
The more you buy, the cheaper they get - up to a point, of course!

What are tumblestones?
Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
