More Information on the Healing Properties of Snowflake Obsidian:

Obsidian is the most abundant form of naturally occurring glass. It is the result of volcanic lava cooling quickly. Technically obsidian may have any composition, but usually it’s a glass with inclusions of hematite and rhyolite. Snowflake Obsidian contains tiny white clusters of cristobalite.  It forms when, over time, the obsidian begins to crystalize. The “snow” in this obsidian is actually crystals of cristobalite, which is the same substance as quartz but with a distinctive crystal structure. As the obsidian continues to weather, it turns into something else, which is why you don’t find very ancient obsidian deposits.

Because it’s easy to chip and forms a sharp point, it has been an invaluable material for toolmaking throughout history, thus contributing to the evolution of the human race. Many cultures also used it to make mirrors and figurines. In fact, one way archaeologists can trace the development of trade is by testing the composition of obsidian objects found along trade routes to find out where it originated, and thus how far it had traveled. More recently, obsidian lore has made its way into popular culture as “dragon glass” in Game of Thrones, or as a “witch’s blade.”

If this stone comes to you it may indicate that you've been experiencing a time of cloudiness or darkness in your life that will soon part. This stone speaks in a very ancient language, so listen closely to what it's trying to tell you.
