Snowflake Obsidian Tumbled


Snowflake Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass that gets its name from the tiny white mineral inclusions, cristobalite, that form little snowflakes-like patterns in the dark stone. It is a smooth stone that is often polished into small gems and beads, which are then fashioned into bracelets and pendants. The hard stone is also ideal for carving small figurines and sculptures.

Snowflake Obsidian is said to purify and ground body, soul and aura. It centers and focuses attention, which can be really useful in chaotic or stressful environments. The black of the obsidian and the white of the snowflakes represent the balancing of dark and light, and this stone is known to be a bringer of balance between two opposing sides.
