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.
Shipping is faster than anything bought and shipped here in the states. Mine came in 3 days and could be tracked all the way. I did return a gem but had no problems with delivery or refund thank goodness. Customer service was excellent with all my requests. Wanted eyes on to see actual color of gems and Gem Select were extremely helpful. Have used them twice. Very happy both times. Will use again.

I am very impressed with the variety of stones, and the information on each one that allows me to see each specific stone before I purchase it. I also enjoy the articles on various aspects of gems, minerals etc. I am looking forward to getting my 1st order.
I bought a few items over the past two years and have always been very satified with the product as well as the price. I note the delivery charge is now a little less - thanks very much. I will visit the site again in the future. I bought a few items from GemSelect and all my experiences were positive. I will use them again if I am in the market for gem stones. Thanks.
