Obsidians are molten lava that cooled so quickly it had no time to crystallize. They
were created as the earth changed and they will support us through our personal evolution and times of change.
Obsidian is an extremely protective and grounding stone that banishes negativity in all forms. Obsidians are very powerful tools for introspection - bringing deep insight into ourselves, ready or not - but Snowflake Obsidian does this in a gentler, more subtle way than some of the other Obsidians. Snowflake Obsidian in particular helps us to identify ingrained patterns and cycles in our life that are not beneficial to us, and helps us to release them as well. This stone can aid us in learning from our mistakes even as we leave them behind.
Snowflake Obsidian can soothe and calm, relieve stress, bring about equanimity and assist in centering ourselves. Snowflake Obsidian helps us to appreciate solitude and deepen our meditative practices.
