Snowflake Obsidian

Tumbled Snowflake Obsidian

Snowflake Obsidian helps you see the light and dark of a situation, bringing balance to your life. It counteracts feelings of “poor me” or victimization. Snowflake obsidian is excellent for grounding and connecting to the Earth. It offers mental and spiritual protection, providing you with a sense of security and stability.

Historical Folklore

Snowflake obsidian is high-silica volcanic glass, formed when lava cools swiftly. The white flecks are cristobalite inclusions. Each obsidian deposit has a slightly different chemical make-up, with different volcanoes putting out lava with different minerals. 

Obsidian has been widely used for jewelry, tools, and weapons in many societies. Snowflake obsidian, however, doesn’t have a smooth sharp edge like standard obsidian when it is broken or shaped, and is more commonly used for meditative purposes.

.Chakra Association

Snowflake obsidian is associated with the base (or root) chakra.

Astrological Association

For those born with their sun in Scorpio, snowflake obsidian encourages you to recognize stagnant patterns and learn from your behavior. It can help you see the value of both your successes and your failures, that all of them have led you to this present moment, who you are now.

For those born with their moon in Gemini, snowflake obsidian helps you to recognize the damage you do to yourself by mistaking emotion-thoughts as truth.

Health Folklore

Can be used for detoxification, arthritis, joint pain, and to increase circulation
