1lb Snow Flake Obsidian Tumbled Stones
Snowflake Obsidian is both an igneous rock and a natural glass. This rock-glass is formed when lava cools with incredible rapidity and minimum crystallization. When this occurs, the lava gradually transforms into a black glass. When the glass loses the general characteristics and properties of a typical glass, including its shine and transparency, the grey-white spots in the gemstone becomes visible. The blackness of this stone enhances the ability to reach your inner self. It is one of the earliest known stones to be used for seeing into the future. Snowflake obsidian has the property of bringing things to the surface. The things brought to the surface could be positive or negative, love, anger, secrets; but with snowflake obsidian, these things are brought to the surface more gently that they might be otherwise. Snowflake obsidian can provide balance during times of change. Snowflake Obsidian possesses a glass-like appearance, smooth surface, and extremely sharp edges. This is composed of 70 percent silicon dioxide. Interestingly, impurities in it consequently define its wide spectrum of colors and visual characteristics. Its signature name comes from the grey crystals that form on black stones. These grey crystals forming spots actually resemble flakes of snow, thus rightfully called snowflakes.
