Snowflake Obsidian Volcanic Glass
Snowflake obsidian tumbled stones, distinctive and wonderfully tactile. The random snowflake-like blotches are inclusions of spherulite which are crystalline fibres that occur in certain igneous rocks. Generally seen in those which are 'glassy' or have a vitreous lustre, a cavity or crystal of the mineral quartz or feldspar. can be found at the centre of each spherulite.
Obsidian is naturally occurring volcanic glass that's produced by magma that has erupted onto the earth's surface and cooled so rapidly that crystals didn't have time to grow. For this reason obsidian lacks any significant internal crystalline structure so is correctly known as a mineraloid not a mineral. Other mineraloids include pearl, shungite, amber, jet and moldavite.
The presence of inclusions and impurities within volcanic glass cause different types of sheen and different colours. Although black obsidian tends to be the best known material other varieties include snowflake, brown, mahogany, rainbow and sheen amongst others.
In crystal healing snowflake obsidian is considered to be a stone of purity which provides balance for the mind, body and spirit. It helps with the recognition and release of ‘wrong thinking’ as well as with stressful mental patterns. As a healing crystal it's calming and soothing and can put the user in the right frame of mind to be receptive for bringing to the surface ingrained patterns of behaviour. It also teaches one to value mistakes as well as success.
