Whatever it is... it has such lovely fluidity to it. If it is indeed obsidian, that would explain why!
Larry Bliss: I am pretty sure it is obsidian...
A solid flow, Larry.
Larry Bliss: I love the flow...

A grand mysterious image Larry
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Chris...
It looks like it's still flowing, Larry. Actually, it reminds me of oil spills in the ocean. God have mercy.
Larry Bliss: Some solids are actually liquids... odd...

Larry Bliss: I like a little mystery...

This is gorgeous, like molten toffee.
Larry Bliss: Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. Obsidian is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth.--Wikipedia
I would not have known what it was. But no matter, it makes a fine image Larry
Larry Bliss: Thank you Bill...

Could be obsidian - looks glass-like and black.

I like obsidian very much. You can see how sharp it can become by it's quality.
Larry Bliss: I wish I had some at home...

It really does look as if it is about to flow from the screen.
Larry Bliss: It is amazing stuff...
