Glass in Arrowheads and Aztec Sacrifices

Bent glass was originally used to craft utensils, weapons, and decorative objects. The first glass known to our prehistoric ancestors was obsidian, or black glass. Obsidian was formed naturally from volcanic lava which cooled too quickly to revert to stone. It comprised the core elements found in bent glass today; silica (quartz sand), soda and lime. Archaeologists and anthropologists have discovered ancient obsidian artifacts all throughout the world. Our ancestors discovered deposits of shattered obsidian, which they utilized to create a range of items. This included Apache arrowheads, which were used for battle and hunting, and implements used by the Aztecs in their human sacrifices.
