Obsidian . . . , who knew that one of the oldest weapons around would have come from the ground and not something man created?
Obsidian is natural glass, an igneous rock created by lava. And it is sharp, beautiful, and deadly.
Arrowheads were carved from obsidian, still are. And these arrowheads were tethered to poles creating hatchets, spears, and arrows.
It is quite painful getting cut on a piece of Obsidian (I know from experience).
*Disclaimer: I have done extensive research on each of these weapons. I am aware that there are many different versions of each of these weapons. I am not trying to spread false information. If you know and can prove any information wrong, please let me know and I will fix my errors. I have at least three references for all research on the weapons I will discuss through the challenge.
