Snowflake Obsidian Galette

Snowflake Obsidian is formed from volcanic lava that cools rapidly upon contact with water, resulting in a glassy texture. It is primarily found in regions with volcanic activity, including areas such as the United States (particularly in the western states), Mexico, and Iceland. The "snowflake" patterns within the obsidian are created by the presence of mineral crystals, typically of the mineral cristobalite, which forms as the lava cools. These crystals give Snowflake Obsidian its characteristic white or gray speckled appearance against a black or dark gray background.

Snowflake Obsidian typically exhibits a deep black or dark gray color, often with distinctive white or gray snowflake-like patterns scattered across its surface. These patterns vary in size and shape, ranging from small specks to larger, more intricate formations resembling snowflakes or flowers. The contrast between the dark base color and the lighter snowflake patterns creates a visually striking effect, making Snowflake Obsidian a popular choice for both lapidary work and ornamental purposes. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Snowflake Obsidian is valued for its perceived metaphysical properties, with some believing it to possess grounding and protective qualities that promote emotional balance, purification, and inner strength. As a result, Snowflake Obsidian is often used in crystal healing practices and spiritual rituals.
