Obsidian is a rare resource that is only found in the Mountain Biome. Obsidian is actually pretty difficult to spot as they are usually in small groups and not part of a huge rock structure like the copper ores. You have to be on the lookout for small, sharp, igneous rocks that at times have some glitter effect over them. These rocks are black in color and thus help a bit as they stand out against the white backdrop of the mountains.

Luckily these rocks are usually strewn around in groups of 3-4 rocks at a time. The game has a procedurally developed map and therefore we can’t tell you a fixed location where the Obsidian can be found. So go ahead and explore and you will find it.
