Snowflake Obsidian Gemmology Facts:

Obsidian is a natural glass formed by the rapid cooling of volcanic lava. A Crystalline structure would have been created if the lava had been allowed to cool slowly. The ‘snowflake’ pattern is created from a white Mineral inclusion called Cristobalite.

It has a dark body colour due to the presence of iron and magnesium in its structure. It has a hardness of 5 – 5.5 on the Mohs Scale.

Do you know the connection to Game of Thrones?! Dragonglass is a common name in Westeros for the Mineral known as Obsidian! Along with Valyrian steel, it is one of the two known materials capable of killing White Walkers. So, if nothing else, this is undoubtedly a must-buy to protect us from the Night King!


A snowflake represents individuality and uniqueness. Snow appears to be a large white blanket from a distance. However, upon closer inspection, you will notice that each flake has its own heavenly beauty. You, like a snowflake, are one-of-a-kind. Snowflake Obsidian’s spiritual meaning is that its gentle energy is similar to a snowflake’s light and airy energy.

Snowflake Obsidian will assist in bringing emotions to the surface. Just like the mouth of a volcano erupts with bubbling lava, which formed this stunning Gemstone.

If you have deep-seated emotions have been stored in your subconscious mind, then you need to introduce this Crystal into your practices. When you can release these emotions, you will be able to understand what true harmony between the body and the mind feels like.

Snowflake Obsidian will aid in the purification of all negativity within you. It will dissolve blockages and tension, as well as cleanse you of toxins.

WHAT CHAKRA DOES Snowflake Obsidian OPEN?

The powerful Gemstone activates the Root Chakra, which is also known as the Base Chakra, and the Third Eye Chakra. When aligned and activated, the Root Chakra will expel any negative energy within your body down through the earth whilst drawing up Mother Nature’s positive energy.


One of the most important things to remember if you own Gemstones or Crystals is to care for them properly. Gemstones should be carefully cared for like any other item we love. We recommend using the Chalmers Gems Gemstone Cleaning & Polishing Cloth to keep your Gems clean.
