Where it's found: Mainly found in Mexico, Australia and the United States.
Variations, Rarity and Value: This stone is formed by volcanic magma that is mainly composed of silica. When cooled quickly, it would make obsidian stone, but if it’s cooled slowly, it can create beautiful patterns. The shape, colours, patterns and sizes of rhyolite can vary depending on the lava. The primary colours you’ll find in rhyolite are yellow, green, red, brown, beige and orange. There can also be air bubbles formed in some stones that cool very slowly. Larger and more pigmented or patterned stones tend to be more valuable.
How to use it: Place on your forehead if you want to recall dreams or past-life memories. Or meditate with it in your hand or nearby. You can also put the stone on your body wherever balancing energy is needed.
