Crystal Spotlight - 30 Ways Snowflake Obsidian Can Help You!

Snowflake obsidian is a lovely black stone with gray flecks. It can be found all over the world and is considered volcanic glass. According to "Obsidian can be used to make extremely sharp knives, and obsidian blades are a type of glass knife made using naturally occurring obsidian instead of manufactured glass. Obsidian is used by some surgeons for scalpel blades, although this is not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on humans. Well-crafted obsidian blades, as with any glass knife, can have a cutting edge many times sharper than high-quality steel surgical scalpels, the cutting edge of the blade being only about 3 nanometers thick." It can range from black to blackish green and carries a Mohs hardness of 5-6.

Snowflake Obsidian is associated with the Earth element, the Crown and Root chakras and astrological sign Capricorn.

Snowflake Obsidian is also associated with the Root and Crown Chakras. The root chakra or base chakra is located at the base of the spine, at the tailbone. The root chakra is associated with the spine, bladder, blood, kidneys, male reproductive organs and feet. When it's out of balance, we may be bossy, domineering, egoic, greedy, or violent. The root chakra regulates our interaction with the world controlling what we embrace and resist. It gives us the ability to be ourselves, and aids in understanding our own needs and emotions. It is the overseer of finances, career, home, physical safety and needs, material needs, our foundation, survival, standing up for yourself, financial independence, and security. An overactive chakra could mean extreme entitlement, jealousy, blaming others, and giving too much. An under active chakra could mean you have a fear of rejection, feel unloved, have self-pity, and are needy. A balanced chakra may make us feel grounded, give us a sense of belonging, trust, and be independent.

The Crown Chakra or the 7th chakra is located at the top, and back of the head. It regulates the brain, nervous system, and pineal gland. An overactive chakra could mean addiction to spiritually, craving attention, and needing to be popular in the eyes of your peers, friends and family. An under active chakra could mean you are misunderstood, unable to have fun, and unaware of denying spiritual connection. A balanced chakra may bring a strong connection to source energy, you are joyful and wise.
