Snowflake Obsidian is black with light patches, formed where the glass has become devitrified around detectable points. When polished, the light patches resemble snowflakes.
Snowflake Obsidian enables one to ‘make the best of a bad situation’ by clearing negative and self-defeating thoughts and inspiring one with new ideas that can improve one’s condition, whatever it may be. Snowflake Obsidian grounds one’s thinking, eliminating energy-draining fantasy. At the same time, it increases one’s psychic sensitivity, making one more able to notice the meaningful synchronicities that can point the way to one’s higher path. Snowflake Obsidian is an able assistant in one’s inner journey to healing and wholeness. Snowflake Obsidian carries courage and persistence to those on the edge of hope. It assists one in perceiving sources of support that may have been overlooked or taken for granted. Snowflake Obsidian helps one pay attention to details, receiving guidance from the clues that come through interactions with others and the experiences of the Earth-walk. It is a stone of the tracker, allowing one to attune to one’s environment and perceive the flow of Universal energy that forms and supports it. In this state of inclusive awareness, one is able to receive the clues, prompts and signs that appear in one’s everyday experiences.
