I've got about a 100 lb if not more steel ball that's about 12 in roughly wide if you want to shoot that

I think it's the shockwave that does the damage around the bullet impact
Neddie Spaghetti
have you ever thought of hitting it with a big one first on a fresh piece?

You could probably get a 12” artificial diamond (the new kinds) that would be actually stronger, prettier, and more interesting to shoot for less than that obsidian

Here Matt goes again inhaling glass particles
Technically obsidian is a very slow nonnewtonian liquid so the ripple of impact is what caused the backside crack basically it hardens upon impact then compresses the center slowly while pushing fractal waves outward causing the flakes and fissures
Obsidian can become monomolecular blades, so probably should have had more safety gear between you...
Im... really sad to see a giant ball of obsidian that big get broken... you Never find that big of a sample...

Obsidian makes great knife blades. My anthropology professor told how he had the doctor use an obsidian blade scalpel for his hernia surgery. Recovery was faster, as it cut way cleaner than steel.

So nobody told you that obsidian is volcanic GLASS! Yes it’s naturally occurring fused silicate. Stone Age man discovered its properties and used it for anything needing a super sharp cutting blade! It has a finer edge as it has a much finer grain structure than steel!

Obsidian isn't similar to glass, it is glass. More precisely it's a natural volcanic glass

My guess would be that it is behaving like that because obsidian is really tough but the kinetic energy of the bullet after impact needs to go somewhere (energy conservation law - dunno how to say it in english properly sorry :D ) so it is traveling through the glass in different directions and each time it finds a weaker spot, it tears the ball apart or when it reaches the other end of the ball it cracks it as it has nowhere else to travel. :D yet I may be completely wrong :D

I'm sure its already been said but obsidian acts like glass because it is glass, just natural and made in the furnaces inside the Earth.

Try quartz, should be structurally different, crystalline versus glass like obsidian

That’s how the cavemen made their obsidian knives and cutlery !!?!?! So they used high tech handguns to shoot balls of polished obsidian !!!

Need to start topping FPSRussia’s videos. You need to fire a bazooka, minigun, mg42, m60, m240, m249, m2, the beowulf 50, and finally... cruise the streets in a tank.

All the flint knappers watching this had to have been going, "yeah, that's about what I expected..." This is basically really extreme precussion knapping. You should get 22plinkster out there to see if you can balistic-knap a knife or spear point or something. The accuracy required would be pretty rediculous, but I bet it could be done
Shoot an amithest

i think the weird effect where you hit the ball and the damage happens around the impact is caused because the glass trys to shatter but around the point of impact theres also glas which prevents it from breaking and then thru momentum transfer magic physiks the glas breaks around the impact and on the opposit side of the ball

one of the sharpest scalpels are made from rapping/breaking obsidian . not able to be shaprened very effectively but extremely sharp if rapped correctly
You didn’t need guns just get a diamond pickaxe

Physics expert here to help answer your question: The obsidian stays intact on the impact zone and blast everything around it away because.......... Idk 🤔
