Snowflake Obsidian (Flowering or Spherulitic Obsidian)

 

Origin: USA

 

These shiny black stones are natural occurring volcanic glass. Obsidian is formed when molten rock in the form of lava, rapidly cools down allowing minimal growth of crystals. The snowflake-like patterns are created by small inclusions of Cristobalite, consisting of microscopic white crystals.

 

We sell very attractive larger-sized tumbled stones. Pieces you can hold and feel in your hand. Our stones are categorised in mainly three sizes, small (ca. 25 to 35 mm & 10 to 25 grams), medium (ca. 30 to 40 mm and 25 to 35 grams) and large (ca. 35 to 55 mm and 35 to 80 grams). Our small is generally larger than the sizes usually found. Please note that these sizes are only indication as some may be smaller and others larger.
