A stone of purity, Snowflake Obsidian brings about a balance to body, mind and spirit. Snowflake Obsidian helps to keep centered and focused when any type of chaotic situation (office, commute, home, etc.) presents itself. Snowflake Obsidian can remove negativity from a space or person with ease.

Volcanic in origin, Snowflake Obsidian helps to draw emotions to the surface and to examine harmful thought patterns. A good choice for past life work, Snowflake Obsidian heals old karmic patterns and helps in examining harmful thought patterns. Snowflake Obsidian promotes a sense of calm and inner centering which readies one for a deep meditative state.

Physically, Snowflake Obsidian is associated with the skeletal and vascular systems, and is said to support smooth skin.

In general, Obsidian is a very grounding and protective stone. It is used as a great cleanser of negative energies, helping to remove not only negativity experienced in the environment, but also that of one's own emotions, such as anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, etc. Obsidian is often used for healing and releasing energy blockages, and has a tendency to work quickly to move truths to the surface to be resolved.

  Snowflake Obsidian changed my life completely.. I am 42 years old and have suffered depression and anxiety my whole life. I started out on a journey two years ago because two people said I am so much more than I know. The Craft is my passion and is what I truly sought out to find.
and after two years and a few people telling me that I have the ability to heal my mind. I found another that finally told me "you have such a bright light inside of you and you hide it, I see that you are on the right path keep following the path."
This not a few days later led me to a wonderful lady that I thought would finally teach me the craft. Little did I know that I had a lot of healing and learning to do before I could even start to learn the craft. She is also a stone expert. She had me get four stones, Snowflake Obsidian being one of them. I am learning so much about myself, Mind, body and spirit during meditation while I hold this stone. It is nothing short of amazing. This stone has started to make me the whole person I never knew I was not. One day I will be able to write a book.  (Submitted by: Laurie on July 06, 2016)
  I wear mine at work in my pocket helps kerp the negative people away, im a loner at work but thats the good part.  (Submitted by: jackie on March 03, 2016)
  This is actually really amazing; I didn't know about all of this!!

I've been doing gem research for character inspiration and am really beginning to want to give this a try, as I'm someone who'd fine this sort of thing really helpful for calming down when I overreact on some thing or the other. What's really caught my interest here, though, is that I used to LOVE snowflake obsidian as a child, to the point it was the only stone I wanted from those little stone-booths at certain stores; you know, the ones with the bags you can fill with gems and such?

But I am a person filled to the brim with negativity, I just try to force it away or eventually drown in it when upset. I would need this balance and cleansing in my life, honestly. So I find it ever so interesting that I used to love it simply for it's appearance (the white snowflakes with the black background was my love) when it was actually revealing so much more about me that I didn't know then.... I think I just might have to make this the first gemstone I get, if I go and give this whole thing a try!!  (Submitted by: Aki on January 23, 2016)
