Obsidian - Snowflake

Source: Mexico, volcanic regions

Chakra: Sacral

Zodiac: Virgo

General: In addition to carrying the generic properties of Obsidian, Snowflake Obsidian is a stone of purity, providing balance for body, mind, and spirit.  It calms and soothes, making you receptive before bringing to your attention ingrained patterns of behaviour and then gently releasing emotional blockages.  With the assistance of Snowflake Obsidian, isolation and loneliness become empowering.  This stone teaches how to surrender in meditation.  Teaching you to value mistakes as well as successes, it shows the gift in experiences and promotes dispassion and inner centring.

Beneficial For: Claimed to be beneficial for releasing ‘wrong thinking’, stressful mental patterns, fear, veins, skeleton, circulation, wound healing, compassion, strength, detoxification, blockages, hardened arteries, arthritis, joint pain, cramp, injuries, pain, bleeding, circulation, and warming the extremities.1

Emotional Healing: Claimed to strengthen determination to accept ourselves for who we are.  Recovery after sudden trauma. 

Practical Uses: Keep buried outside to prevent winter ills and misfortune and attract warmth and abundance.

Workplace: A natural ongoing cleanser of stagnation, lack of enthusiasm and undercurrents of tension, drawing people with different viewpoints together.2
