Information about Snowflake Obsidian

Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass, consisting mainly of Silicon Dioxide – Iron and Magnesium sometimes give the Obsidian a dark appearance.

As a glass, Obsidian shatters into incredibly sharp pieces – it has been used throughout time for blades or arrowheads, and was considered in modern days for use as scalpel blades, as it produces a far finer cutting edge than steel.

Inclusions of small clusters of Cristobalite crystals create a special kind of Obsidian, with an interesting snowflake style pattern – simply, Snowflake Obsidian.
