You don't, but you can spawn it using an admin plugin or InvEdit, Obsidian is unbreakable so be wary of where you put it.

Obsidian is created by mixing water and lava.

The tricky part to this is that you MUST have the water so that it flows into the lava.

If the lava is the one that flows into the water, then it won't turn into obsidian.

The best way to do this is to place a bucket of water on a block facing a pool of water. Any block of lava the water flows into will turn into obsidian.

Obsidian IS breakable, but takes a long time to do so, and in order to mine it you MUST use a Diamond Pickaxe. If you do not use a Diamond Pickaxe, then the block will just outright break.

They take 15 seconds to mine with a diamond pickaxe.

You need static lava (the one that doesnt flow) and pour water on it, if the lava is flowing it will turn to stone.

Have water flow into lava, simple as that.

Vice Versa, lava flowing into water makes infinite cobblestone.

You can make obsidian by pouring water on a lava source block. The lava block will then turn into a block of obsidian.

Obsidian is made by adding water to a lava source block. It has to be a source block, otherwise it makes cobblestone instead.
