Snowflake Obsidian Crystal Healing Properties
Snowflake Obsidian is thought to bring self defeating and negative thought patterns and emotions to the surface to clear them. It may clear energetic blocks, fear and obstructions to wholesome thoughts. As such, many think it creates hope and inspires new positive ideas.
Furthermore, it is believed to allow us to connect with the realm of spirit, totem animals and the environment. As such, helping us to recognise and receive guidance, support and assistance to walk our highest path. In past life work, it may give us insight into present day problems and allows us to release these. In addition, it is believed to be a particularly supportive stone for those with depression, giving them the strength to overcome attitudes of victimisation and an awareness of how to shift their reality for the better.
History and Uses
Obsidian derives its name from an ancient Roman explorer called Obsius who was given a mystical black glass sphere from a volcano by an Ethiopian woman called Xenia. Obsidian has been used since Paleolithic times for making tools because it holds a sharp edge.
Obsidian is a glassy, silica rich rock formed from fast cooling lava, with a hardness of 5 to 5.5. It is an amorphous stone meaning that its structure contains no regular geometric pattern. The “snowflake” pattern is made from white crystal inclusions trapped in the lava as it cooled.
