When lava quickly cools, it becomes the mystical black mineraloid, Obsidian. Known for its beauty, translucency and strength. Randy Butterfield of The Midnight Card Company has captured these elusive quantities to create the Ornate Obsidian Shadow Playing Cards. Meticulously adding gold touches of intricate embellishments he has created a design that is truly regal. The detailed border adds a touch of elegance and class, while minimizing the appearance of chipped edges after heavy use. The striking corner indices are large and bold to be read from a distance. The half-moon side cut outs mirrored in the pips, are a reflection of a well-crafted obsidian knife that is so smooth and even that it is infinitely sharper than high-quality steel surgical scalpels.
