The Yin Yang
Whether rendered in obsidian or some other material, the taijitu is a reminder of balance. The black swirl represents yin while the white swirl represents yang. However, there is a white dot in the black swirl just as how there is a black dot in the white swirl, which serve to remind us that there is always a measure of yang in yin just as how there is always a measure of yin in yang.
