Snowflake Obsidian Stone
Known as the "Stone of Purity," Snowflake Obsidian is wonderfully purifying to the mind, body, and soul. It sheds light on our dark side, helping us improve through self-reflection. This fast-working stone is also called "volcano glass," “nature's glass” and “mirror stone” because it formed so quickly from lava that it doesn’t have a crystalline structure and shines like glass.
This one-of-a-kind Snowflake Obsidian stone is 100% natural and originated from Brazil. It is a small, tumbled stone that can be carried in your pocket, held in your hand, placed on your root chakra during meditation, or displayed in a bowl full of your favorite tumbled stones.
Each piece will differ in size, weight, and appearance. The image shown is a representation of the quality of our Snowflake Obsidian crystals. One will be handpicked for you.
Snowflake Obsidian Properties
Snowflake Obsidian is a black stone with inclusions of radially clustered white areas of cristobalite, which looks like snowflakes when polished.
When shaped into a point, it is sharper than even the best surgical steel, therefore it is used in modern-day scalpels. Over history, it has been used to create arrowheads, spears, knives, and axes. In the Middle East, it was used during circumcisions because of its precision, and the ancient Melanesians used it to tattoo the skin.
