"Dragon glass"!! Defense against the walking dead, charm against nightmares, pieces for a wind chime, base for wand-making -- these naturally occurring "needles" are ascribed protective properties however you use them.
********************************************************************************************************
From "A Storm of Swords", book 3 of "A song of Ice and Fire" ("Game of Thrones" is Book 1):
"He heard a crack, like the sound ice makes when it breaks beneath a man’s foot, and then a screech so shrill
and sharp that he went staggering backward with his hands over his muffled ears, and fell hard on his arse.
When he opened his eyes the Other’s armor was running down its legs in rivulets as pale blue blood hissed
and steamed around the black dragonglass dagger in its throat. It reached down with two bone‐white hands
to pull out the knife, but where its fingers touched the obsidian they smoked.
Sam rolled onto his side, eyes wide as the Other shrank and puddled, dissolving away. In twenty heartbeats
its flesh was gone, swirling away in a fine white mist. Beneath were bones like milkglass, pale and shiny, and
they were melting too. Finally only the dragonglass dagger remained, wreathed in steam as if it were alive
and sweating. Grenn bent to scoop it up and flung it down again at once. “Mother, that’s cold.”
“Obsidian.” Sam struggled to his knees. “Dragonglass, they call it. Dragonglass. Dragon glass.”

These needles are mostly mahogany obsidian, with some black, and are found only at Davis Creek, CA, apparently the only site worldwide where they exist in quantity.

I had trouble with the listing questions--these are not produced by me, nor by another company or person -- they're made by the earth itself, or a volcano. They are uneven but mostly somewhat shiny, with many planes or uneven facets in each piece.

Describing them adequately is difficult -- they have a kind of raw beauty, even grandeur (if you can say that about such small objects).

Their lengths range from over 2" to just 4" and this listing is for a random lot of 4 (up from 3 in the previous listing) Specific requests for longer, shorter, thicker, thinner, will be honored when possible, but if I don't get a message you will get a mix of available sizes and shapes.
The last photo shows a larger mix of needles, plus a piece I'm working on -- some of those will show up on TheCreativeBlock (link below) in the near future.

BETTER PRICE!! We've just received a new shipment, and since we buy by weight, the number of pieces in our lots varies--this one had more than the first, so the price is now for 4 instead of 3 needles, and we have 12 lots!. There's quite a lot of variation here, from quite big/thick to very small needles, so if you have a preference, let us know -- otherwise we'll try to send an assortment.

PLEASE read our policies section for information about shipping.
