This piece of Snowflake Obsidian is from within the volcanic region of rural northern Queensland and was collected by hand as part of a family fossicking trip and is without doubt ethically and sustainably and joyfully sourced.
The mystical properties of Obsidian also date back to early civilizations, most notably in Mesoamerica, for its reflective quality and ability to be polished into mirrors. Deep black, or sometimes with a murky transparency, these mirrors reflected shadow images and were metaphors for sacred caves and pools of water. They were conduits for supernatural forces; to the Maya they were a means to communicate with otherworld entities, and to others they were a portal to realms that could be seen but not interacted with.
For the master of this amulet, the Snowflake Obsidian works like a mirror that help can reflect who you really are. It helps reveal weaknesses and how you can turn them into strengths. Snowflake Obsidian is also a very protective stone. Having this in your possession will give you a sense of security and stability, knowing that no harm will come to you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
In ancient Mexico and surrounding regions Obsidian was known as iztli or teotetl, meaning “the divine stone,” used to carve amulets, jewelry, grave ornaments, and images of the god Tezcatlipoca, whose name means “smoking mirror,” and who was said to see all that occurred in the world and heavens through his Obsidian mirror. The Olmecs fashioned concave mirrors capable of lighting fires, and the Maya and Aztecs wore Obsidian mirrors to show elite status and polished it into sheets for divining a person’s destiny. Ancient Greek civilizations used Obsidian balls and flat mirrors for scrying, and Native American cultures used Obsidian in their spiritual ceremonies to sharpen inner sight.
