Capture a snowflake for a lifetime!
Snowflake Obsidian is a volcanic glass that formed when lava quickly cools with little crystal growth to give texture. It is a black obsidian with gray-white "snowflakes" called phenocryst, which are spots made of needle-like cristobalite quartz. Obsidian is silica-rich with low water content and becomes a true rock over time in a process called devitrification. Because it is considered a rock and not technically a glass, it does not produce a sharp edge when broken so it is not useful as a tool like true obsidian. Snowflake obsidian can be found in the United States, Iceland and Mexico where there is evidence of volcanic activity.
Metaphysical Meaning and Healing Properties: Snowflake Obsidian is a stone of purity that balances mind, body and spirit. It calms and grounds while helping one to find the positives in loneliness, such as meditation. Not only will one find desirability in isolation, but one will also find the merit in mistakes and changes. Snowflake Obsidian assists in transformations and manifestation. It is also believed to enhance blood circulation while relieving muscle and joint pain.
