Blood Glass

The smoke and gases filled his lungs as he tried to outrun the rising lava. He had to get out of the volcano. An explosion deep in the mountain shook loose large shards of crimson obsidian from the walls of the long-dormant volcano. Ivan picked up one of the shards. It must have been sitting in the snow for hundreds of years, and though even he was barely sweating from the heat two hundred feet below, the piece of volcanic glass had a warm glow to it. It was pulsing, beating... kind of like a heart.
