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."
Buddhism is a religion encompassing a wide variety of traditions and beliefs. Spiritual practices vary based on different schools of thought yet all center around the teachings of the Buddha. He is believed to have live and taught mainly in eastern India between the 600 to 400BC. To its adherents, Buddhism is more than a religion, it’s a way of life and a philosophy on how to live your life. The middle path and "enlightenment" are central ideas/tenants along with Dhamma (Truth). The Buddha was actually a man named Siddhartha Gotama. After six years of study and meditation and attaining enlightenment, he spent the rest of his life teaching the principles of Buddhism.
