Snowflake Obsidian

Lovely Snowflake Obsidian (Heaven & Earth Stone) small palm.

Snowflake Obsidian - sometimes referred to as the Heaven and Earth Stone - brings both these energies into harmony and balance. It can be used to help gently resolve issues by providing clarity; helping us to see a complex and trying situation from a different, more beneficial perspective. It can provide support and balance through these sometimes difficult times of change.   This is a lovely stone, which is essentially black Obsidian but with small inclusions of the mineral cristobalite, which radiate out forming the appearance of tiny white snowflakes in the stone.

From a metaphysical point of view, all natural Obsidians have a very strong energy and all are grounding and protective. They help raise the ‘warrior instinct’ in us when despondency is present; due perhaps to a prolonged ‘battle’ of our own like a lengthy legal matter for instance.  All of the Obsidians (with the exception of man-made Blue Obsidian) also make excellent Root or Base Chakra stones.

Obsidian is essentially a naturally occurring form of glass, created by volcanic lava which has cooled rapidly before any crystal structure could form. Because of this lack of crystal structure it is possible to cut or chip Obsidian into very thin, sharp layers. This is why it was a favoured medium used by ancient civilizations for the production of arrowheads. Obsidian is comprised of more then 70% Silicon Dioxide, but due to its lack of crystalline structure, it cannot be classified as a true mineral.  It usually occurs in dark colours; brown, green and more commonly black, and these colours occur depending on the impurities they contain like iron or magnesium.

Approximate size: L35mm x W25mm
