Obsidian is natural glass that was originally molten magma associated with a volcano. This volcanic glass has an almost total absence of sizable mineral crystals within the glass matrix.
Obsidian was used to make knives, arrowheads, spear points, scrapers, and many other weapons and tools. Once these discoveries were made, obsidian quickly became the raw material of preference for producing almost any sharp object. The easy-to-recognize rock became one of the first targets of organized "mining."
About Japanese Myth
Japanese mythology is the legend and history of Japanese culture. It's origins lie in the Shinto and Buddhist traditions as well as the rural folk religions that sprang up among the agricultural class. Japanese Shinto lore contains innumerable kami (god or spirits) for nearly every conceivable happenstance in daily life. The Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) is the oldest surviving document detailing the legends and history of the Japanese people. The Imperial Family is also accorded divine status as Japanese mythology explains how the line came to be and even the title Emperor of Japan means "Heavenly Sovereign".
