La obsidiana es un vidrio volcánico que se origina cuando la lava volcánica, con alto contenido de sílice y aluminio, alcanza los 600 grados Celsius de temperatura y luego se enfría rápidamente, (Pastrana, s.f.). Clasificada como vidrio por la mineralogía, la misma es dura y frágil, transparente y translúcida, con una característica fractura, aguda, recta y constante, permitiendo la elaboración de diversos tipos de instrumentos.
