Helenite, also known as Mount St. Helens obsidian, emerald obsidianite, and ruby obsidianite, is a gemstone made from the fused volcanic rock dust from Mount St. Helens. The volcano erupted on May 18, 1980 ejecting igneous rock from 10-20 miles underground. Helenite is made in the USA by fusing this material at 2700ºF, which is then faceted and polished.
