These snowflake obsidian pieces measure roughly two inches in size. Snowflake Obsidian is a type of black volcanic glass with white crystal formations that resemble snowflakes. The term "polished" refers to the surface finish of the stone, which has been smoothed and shining to a high luster through a grinding and buffing process. Obsidian is often utilized in jewelry and decorative objects, as well as in various healing and spiritual practices.
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock and is rated between 5 and 6 on the Mohs hardness scale. Obsidian is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth. In the past, obsidian was utilized to manufacture cutting and piercing tools and it has been utilized experimentally as surgical scalpel blades. Metaphysically, Obsidian is associated with resolution; remedies shock and trauma.
