Snowflake Obsidian is such an incredibly beautiful stone. You can see it in the lower right of the photo above but here’s a clearer photo of it.
Black Obsidian is a very powerful and creative stone. It grounds the soul and spiritual forces into the physical plane.
However, Snowflake Obsidian has some different properties. The white inclusions in the black obsidian do indeed look like snowflakes.
It is known to calm and soothe, putting you in a positive frame of mind to be receptive before bringing to your attention certain ingrained patterns of behavior. It teaches you to value mistakes as well as successes.
It is a stone of purity, providing a balance for the mind, body, and soul. It can also help you recognize and release ways of thinking that do not serve your highest good, or that are stressful ways of thinking. Snowflake Obsidian keeps us grounded and balanced during chaotic times, and encourages us to be present and in the moment.
It aids with isolation and loneliness. I think we all could have used this beautiful stone through last year’s lockdown.
It is empowering and can aid in meditation.
As far as physical healing, the Snowflake Obsidian can treat vein issues and the skeletal structure. It improves circulation and can be beneficial for the skin and eyes.
A common use is to place this stone in water and drink as an elixir.
I’d love to hear from you. Do any of you have or use this stone? It makes gorgeous jewelry!
