My wife came back from the big island with a speck of embedded lava in her hand that she kept for several months.

We were both very careful a few years later when we were at the Great Obsidian Flow near Bend, OR. Falling there would have ended with a trip to the hospital if we were lucky enough not to bleed out.

If lava is like a cheese grater, obsidian is like broken coke bottles full of razor blades.
