ThisÂ fabulous range of Krakatoa Glass Flesh Plugs features a wonderful assortment of pieces designed forÂ stretched ear piercings. Each one has beenÂ beautifully crafted and polishedÂ fromÂ naturalÂ Java Obsidian glass.
Obsidian is a natural glass of volcanic origin that is formed by the rapid cooling of lava. Obsidian flesh plugs have a glassy lustre that reflects the sunlight beautifully with aÂ stunning array of colours,Â natural patterns and textures shining through a translucent surface.
Obsidian has been used for thousands of years for toolmaking. Sharp shards of obsidian were formed into arrowheads by Indians. The Aztecs also used obsidian for tools such as sacrificial knives, the eyes of carving of their gods, and even mirrors.
The KrakatoaÂ Glass Flesh Plug rangeÂ is a stunning representation of mother nature, very comfortable to wear and look after. Cleaning is easy and quick; maintaining a healthy piercing has never been easier!
Natural materials worn in stretched piercings help to reduce bad odour and offer great biocompatibility, ensuring a safe and comfortable piece of jewellery especially for people with allergies or sensitive skin.
Obsidian has been known to have mystical power, often used for gaining clear insight into problems. Obsidian stabilizes and is a chastiser.
The Krakatoa Glass Flesh Plugs are double-flared, only recommended for healed stretches. It’s important to change yourÂ stretching sizeÂ gradually, allowing ample healing time between sizes (normally a minimum of 3-4 weeks). The best and easiest way to stretch yourÂ ear piercing is with the use of stretching tapers (or Insertion Pins) found on BodyJewelleryShop.
