At the time of Ancient Rome, the warrior Obsian brought dark shiny stones from Ethiopia to the capital of the empire, which have since been called obsidians. Obsidians are volcanic glass and come in black, gray, yellow, brown, or red.
Brown stones with black inclusions are called Persians, and gray-white stones are snow obsidants.
