Snowflake Obsidian
Energy Vibrations

Add a pretty little tumbled Snowflake Obsidian to your crystal collection. This stone is mined in the USA, from a unique deposit in Utah where black Obsidian is fused with white Cristobalite. This is a perfect stone for exploring wintery energies, including allowing ourselves time to rest and recognizing that feeling "warm and cozy" is as much an emotional need as it is a physical one.



Ethically Sourced

Snowflake Obsidian from United States

This Snowflake Obsidian comes from a small mine in Utah, USA.  The mining has a low environmental impact and is safe for miners.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Snowflake Obsidian Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published June 2014  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Snowflake Obsidian is a rare variety of Obsidian found primarily in Utah in the Western United States.  It gets its pretty white spots from Cristobalite, a silica mineral that partially crystallized with the Obsidian was hardening.  Like other Obsidians, it is formed from  rapidly cooling lava following a volcanic eruption.  Normally the Obsidian hardens so quickly that there is no time for any minerals to crystallize, making Snowflake Obsidian quite unique!  It’s energy is softer than pure Black Obsidian, offering a gentle grounding.  It is a wonderful stone to work with following a trauma and when grieving a loss.
