Snowflake Obsidian is a naturally occurring gemstone that is predominately black in colour white 'snowflake' flecks.
The physical structure of snowflake obsidian is "amorphous". This means that it does not have a repeating crystalline structure. The reason it has no such structure is that this mineral was formed from cooling lava.
Snowflake Obsidian sometimes associated with:
- the astrological sign of Virgo
- optimisation of thought patterns to re-direct one's life
- purity and balance
- the number 8
