Snowflake Obsidian is a glassy, silica rich volcanic rock with an amorphous structure and a hardness of 5 to 5.5. It is black with whitish spots. It is named after the prominent ancient Roman, Obsius. 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. It grounds one’s thinking, eliminating energy-draining fantasy. It increases one’s psychic sensitivity, making one more able to notice meaningful synchronicities that can point the way to one’s higher path. Meditating with Snowflake Obsidian can put one in touch with the world of souls, facilitating communication with lost loved ones. It also attunes one to memories of past lives or to forgotten events of the present life, focusing in on the recall of events that relate to present difficulties. In such recall lies the key to the insights that will allow one to overcome and release the problems.

Snowflake Obsidian works most synergistically with Magnesite, which enhances attunement with higher realms. Zincite strengthens the lower chakras, where imbalances may be exposed by working with Snowflake Obsidian. Lapis Lazuli, Iolite, Siberian Blue Quartz, Scolecite and Herderite assist in Snowflake Obsidian’s enhancement of psychic ability.
