Snowflake Obsidian

Updated on May 19, 2014

Snowflake Obsidian is a beautiful stone. I have a tumble stone which I carry with me when I want to remain emotionally objective. I have been using crystals for many years to help cope with stress, depression, and other emotional issues. Snowflake Obsidian is one which I find particularly beautiful. It is black with flecks of white all over the surface.

I live in Toronto. My old apartment was right around the corner from an amazing shop which sells all sorts of crystals. There were many high end pieces worth thousands of dollars. I enjoyed browsing this store whenever I needed a boost. This is where I purchased many tumble stones. They are very inexpensive. Usually they only cost a couple of dollars.

Stress Alleviating Stone

Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful stone to carry if you are burdened with stress. It will help you organize your internal chaos. It will help you slow down and recognize your thought patterns. When we are in a stressful frame of mind our thoughts can become very scattered. Our emotions can distract us from our internal focus. Snowflake Obsidian helps us feel less emotional. This can guide us to a better outlook.

Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra is also known as the second chakra. It is associated with our sex organs. Snowflake Obsidian is a good stone to place on our Sacral Chakra for meditation. Meditation is a great way to improve our lives. I have practiced various forms for many years. I currently study Kundalini yoga which integrates meditation with exercise. Kundalini yoga specifically focuses on the different chakras. The Sacral Chakra is one which deals with issues of control. When we want balance in our life we can try this meditation. In martial arts our center of focus is located right below the belly button. You would stand and take 10 deep breaths as you place the stone of Snowflake Obsidian on your pelvic region. This will help you tap into the power of this remarkable stone.

Snowflake Obsidian helps us let go. In meditation terminology this is referred to as surrendering. This stone is one of purity. It is wonderful to use if you are experiencing issues with addictions. It will clarify your mental thought patterns to help you understand your personal habits. This will enable you to change your behavior and make better choices in the future.

      @John Dyhouse: I once took a trip to the mineral capital of Canada as a child. They have rock farms there in a village called Bancroft, Ontario where you are able to hunt for your own stones.

      When my family was young, collecting things like semi-precious stones and rocks was something that the whole family took an interest in. We had a tumbler and would polish up pebbles off the beaches we visited and also collect shells and sometimes fossils. I remember we had samples of this stone in our colleection
