Odsidian is a natural volcanic glass. This glassy, lustrous mineral is found in lava flows. Obsidian is produced when lava cools very quickly. The lava cools so quickly that no crystals can form. In some Obsidian, the inclusion of small, white, radially clustered crystals of cristobalite in the black glass produce a blotchy or snowflake pattern (hence the name: snowflake obsidian).
Obsidian is important to many ancient cultures. It was one of the major barter materials, and has been used since prehistoric times for making tools, masks, weapons, mirrors and jewelry. Obsidian was named after a Roman-Obsius.
Metaphysical Properties of Snowflake Obsidian: Legends say Snowflake Obsidian provides strength in times of need. It also enables one to find strength and willingness to shift one's reality for the better.
