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 have always been skeptical of ordering fine items online for fear of disappointment. Today, Thursday April 26, I received the blue sapphire which I ordered on Monday, April 23. Not only was I impressed with the rapid delivery of my sapphire, but I was very pleased with the way the stone was packaged and protected. The sapphire itself was far better quality than I had anticipated and it will make a beautiful centerpiece for the ring I'm having made. Thanks so much for the great experience...
