Snowflake Obsidian

Seen as the stone of Purity, Snowflake Obisidian is recognized as a deep black stone containing distinctive gray and/or white patterns that resemble snowflakes. It originates when volcanic lava and gas cools rapidly. The chance addition of white minerals (Cristobalite) become trapped in the stone and form the snowflake pattern, differentiating this process from that of Black Obsidian. Just like a snowflake, each is unique.

The black and white colors signify the balancing of light and shadow. This crystal brings equilibrium between opposing sides, as well as insight into each side. It is a gentle reminder that it can be helpful to reflect on both the good and the bad and remember that there is always something positive to focus on or be a part of. Using Snowflake Obsidian can help you learn from your mistakes and your successes.

This crystal is best utilized as a powerful negative energy cleanser, assisting in the removal of not just bad energy from the environment, but also negativity from your own emotions. If you are facing personal transformation, Snowflake Obsidian can help you surrender while valuing the gift of the experience.
