More about Snowflake Obsidian

Our Snowflake Obsidian beads are a deep black color with lacy bursts of gray-white. The neutral color palette of this stone combines beautifully with bright colors!

Inclusions of white, clustered crystals of the mineral cristobalite (a type of quartz) in black obsidian glass produce a beautiful snowflake-like pattern, producing snowflake obsidian.

Obsidian is a type of naturally formed glass that was originally expelled from a volcano as molten lava and then cooled very rapidly in the surrounding environment. This rapid cooling prevents an organized crystal structure from forming, so although obsidian is a hard material, in chemical terms, it is considered a liquid! From a geological perspective, most obsidian is a very young material – less than 20 million years old – as over time, it becomes transformed from glass into rock through a process called “devitrification”.
