Glass can also be created by nature from various mineral conditions. 'Obsidian' is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimum crystal growth. The beauty of this glass stone comes from the unrefined pureness and essentiality.
From this we questioned: How can we apply the beauty of naturally occurring minerals relevantly to different human used tools?
