Worry stones are smooth, polished stones, usually in the shape of an oval, with a thumb-sized indentation. They are often used by people for relaxation or anxiety relief purposes, the same way as some people use a fidget spinner. Typically, worry stones are 1 1/2 to 2" across. They are may also be referred to as palm stones, thumb stones, fidget stones, etc.

Obsidian is a natural, volcanic "glass" that is formed when molten rock cools so quickly that the atoms don't have enough time to arrange themselves into crystals. To form obsidian, the composition of the lava must be high in silica. While pure obsidian is jet black, other impurities can give it interesting colorations and properties.

The golden sheen in golden sheen obsidian is due to tiny gas bubbles trapped in the glass. These tiny bubbles have been stretched nearly flat along the flow layers in obsidian. These tiny gas bubbles cause light to reflect in such a way as to produce the appearance of a golden or silver sheen in the obsidian.
