The sharpness of black obsidian is also expressed as a metaphysical property. This powerful stone can help cut through illusions, lies, fearful facades and blockages, etc. The amount of information that black obsidian can reveal and the intensity of this truthful energy can be overwhelming. The perfection of its black colour reveals the darkness that blocks the light in any situation and in any person.
This is why the black obsidian is best used with much respect and care, especially the black obsidian spheres.
Another facet of the black obsidian identity is its ability to draw in negative energy, thus protecting the wearer or the surroundings in which it is placed. As such, the black obsidian was (and still is) used as protection in various body adornments, jewelry, as well as in many areas of one's home. The powerful alchemical properties of the black obsidian are due to its origin. Obsidian is born out of quickly cooled volcanic lava, so it has the most potent energy of the interaction of several raw and powerful elements - fire, earth and water. In healing, the black obsidian is used to help one become more grounded, focused and clear in all practical matters.

BLACK TOURMALINE: Black Tourmaline is a powerful stone for protection against negative energy of all kinds... as well as being a strong spiritual grounding stone. This is one of the most popular crystals to be used for metaphysical purposes. Many people, and I am amongst this group... believe this is the best protection stone that you can use. It also encourages positive attitudes, good luck and happiness, regardless of the circumstances that you find yourself in.
They are wonderful aids to both the professional healer and the average person who wants a stone that will be a positive force for good in your life... as it creates a positive attitude and mindset. Having the vibration of Black Tourmaline stone within your aura for as long as possible each day is to your advantage. They will help you to let go of negativity and self doubts or any feelings of anxiety or negativity of any kind. If it is not possible for you to have them on you during the day, it would be advantageous, to at least have a couple of these stones in the bedroom.
Putting one of these crystals under your pillow will cleanse your etheric body while you sleep... as well as the room where you are sleeping. It will strengthen the immune system and assist pain relief of arthritis... and the relief of spinal or muscular problems.
The good thing about this stone is that it does not absorb negativity, but changes or alters it or transmutes it into positive energy. This means it improves the vibration of the air where it is located. Keeping it in the bedroom will help you to sleep better and wake more refreshed. It is powerful for healing and for psychic protection and spiritual purposes... and will strengthen the immune system and help allergies. You all have times when you feel negative, or when you encounter other people who are giving off vibrations that are not pleasing to you. Although wearing stones as jewelry is the easiest way to keep a piece of the stone on your body, if this is not possible keep a piece of the stone in the room with you... as this is very helpful.
Important note about Black Tourmaline: I know that there are stones that send back the negative energy... but this stone will not do that unless it has inclusions of mica in it. Many people are not aware that normal Black Tourmaline simply changes negative energy to positive energy. But if it also contains mica, it will send bad feelings back to the person who sent it, allowing the sender to realize what has occurred. The best stone to use to send negative energy back to where it came from is Fire Agate, so you may like to combine these together.

Real Boji Stones are sold by Karen the owner of the land and here she describes how they were found on her land and the name given at the time. Karen describes her first encounter with the Boji stones and the way they got their name-in her own words: "When I was little, probably three, I had a crow I named 'Boji. No one knew where the name came from because I had been raised in close connection with animals and made mostly animal sounds at that age. However, people interpreted this as my inability to pronounce something correctly. My grandfather took me to a mound of earth on his land that looked like a pyramid I saw these little black stones sitting on stems. I picked one up, held it, and felt it pulsate. I looked up at my grandfather and asked him if they were Boji's You see, the stones were black and shiny like my pet crow's feathers, and they were surrounded by little mounds of earth that looked like nests. I thought they must have been eggs laid by my crow! That was the beginning of the name".
MOQUI BALLS: Also known as Moqui Marbles, Mochi Marbles, Shaman Stones, Navajo Cherries, or Indian Marbles. These stony spheres are actually concretions - sandstone balls cemented by a hard shell of iron oxide minerals. The outside is Iron, and the inside is Sandstone. The outer shell of hematite (iron oxide) congealed around a sandstone centre which may be stained red or yellow from the iron oxides leaching into the sand. Acres of these chocolate-colored rocks are scattered across Utah and Arizona in the USA, and more commonly at the Navajo Sandstone Formations.
Moqui balls are a sacred Shaman Stone and where very likely named after the Moqui Indians. The children of the Indian tribe who lived there were known to play with these stones, particularly the smaller stones, and used them like children today use marbles, hence the name Moqui Marbles.
Moqui Marbles are protective, grounding and excellent for astral projection. Some ancient cultures believe Moqui marbles have mystical and healing qualities. They contain a sandstone center encased in an iron oxide shell and are found in many of Utah's national parks, including Zion. They are named after the Moqui Indians and used by some tribes to communicate with their ancestors.
Moqui Balls are said to be deeply connected to the Earth and are believed to be one of the most energetic stones on earth. The stones are both grounding and energizing. Shaman Stones may be useful in connecting with one’s animal guides, and in providing psychic protection. They may also help with the purification of negative energies. Use on the third eye is said to enhance psychic abilities. Shaman Stones fosters understanding of individuality allowing one to recognize and know the self as a free will independent being. Shaman Stones provides spiritual guidance and understanding of experiences that are beneficial for soul healing. Shaman Stones guides one intuitively and creates awareness of necessary healing on a subconscious level.
Shaman stones have been used for centuries by Shamans and other mystics. They are considered sacred among the sages of many ancient tribes. The stones have been used in rituals to contact extra-terrestrials, spirit vision quests and astral journeying. Shaman Stones provide psychic protection during vision quests and shamanic journeying.
Some interesting and fascinating fact about Moqui Balls: Did you know that similar stones are actually found on Mars and are called “blueberries”.? Moqui Marbles formed in the groundwater in Utah ‘s National Parks millions of years ago, even before marble-shaped pebbles nicknamed ‘blueberries’ were discovered on Mars by the Opportunity rover. After studying Shaman stones in Utah ‘s national parks, University of Utah geologists predicted similar stones would be found on the Red Planet. The geologists said marble-shaped rocks known as concretions formed millions of years ago in groundwater-soaked rocks. So Earth have Moqui Marbles, Mars have very similar stones called Blueberries and now they predict similar stones will be found on another planet? Now thats fascinating to me, what do you think?
As of February 2017 It is illegal to take the Moqui Marbles from the land in Grand Staircase National Monument and they are federally protected.
BOJI STONES VS MOQUI BALLS
Boji Stones and Moqui Balls are two different stones. Boji Balls are found in Kansas and are composed of pyrite. Moqui Balls are considered a sacred Shaman Stone and where very likely named after the Moqui Indians. The outside of a Moqui Ball is Iron, and the inside is Sandstone. Boji Stones are another Iron concretion, but they are heavier than the Mochi Balls, because they do not have Sandstone in the center like the Mochi Balls. Boji Stones comes as a pair one female and one male, real Boji Stones comes with a certificate of authenticity. Moqui balls don’t come as female/male pairs, those are the Boji Stones which is a different type of stone not to be confused with Moqui balls.
IMAGE FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDING: I'm adding an image for display purposes to better understand the difference. Boji stones since are made of iron are much heavier than the moqui balls that inside are filled with sandstone as the images display. Now, Boji stones comes in female/male pair (most of the time) the female is always more smooth than the male which has the nodules and small cubic forms sticking out of the stone creating a ridged looking surface.
Now Moqui balls can look similar to the female boji stones, reason why is very difficult to identify if you don't know about them. Only by holding them in your hand is that you can see more clearly the difference not just on the surface but the weight, as the Boji stone is much heavier than the Moqui ball.
