About Snowflake Obsidian
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass. It is formed when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools without crystal growth. Obsidian has been known since prehistoric times, and has some fascinating properties as well as some important practical uses. In addition to its use as a gemstone, obsidian has been used in cardiac surgery, as well-crafted obsidian blades have a cutting edge many times sharper than high-quality steel surgical scalpels.
In some stones, the inclusion of small, white, radially clustered crystals of cristobalite in the black glass produce a blotchy or snowflake pattern, and this is known in the gem trade as snowflake obsidian.
I've received and examined my first order. GemSelect combined my two orders (places separately on the same day) saving me $20.00 as a credit. After having received the order, I know I will most assuredly be using the credit on a subsequent order. The gemstones were as represented on the website, so much so that I have kept a copy of the photos as references. I'm very happy with the price, the quality and the excellent shipment which I received very promptly. Kudos to them, also, for all...
