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.
This is my third order from GemSelect. I was 100% satisfied with my first two orders. Their photographs and product descriptions are very accurate and helpful. Selection is great. Shopping is very easy.
I received the product in a very well packaged parcel with complete detail of what I ordered. I opened the envelope, then the bag and then the bubble wrap and then the item containing the stone. I was so delighted at the color, the cut , the clean clarity and the sparkle of my Ametrine, love at first sight. Cant wait to get it set into a ring with some Citrine and Amethyst. Thanks so much
I have ordered several times from this vender and have never been disappointed. All stones have been what I expected to receive or better. I will continue to do business with this merchant for some time to come.
