Are you a Paranormal Investigator, or a parent with young children to protect? Do you have a competitive profession, or feel as though negativity has taken over your workplace or home? At some point in our lives we will be faced with adversity, negativity, or evil of some form. In any case, be sure you are prepared with the right protection talisman. My number one suggestion is Snowflake Obsidian.
Snowflake Obsidian is a Black Obsidian stone with inclusions of Phenocryst, a white-gray mineral. This mineral resembles a snowflake pattern when the stone is polished, hence the name Snowflake Obsidian. Obsidian is formed volcanically when lava rich in silicic acid rapidly cools. The lava hardens so quickly that no crystalline structures are able to form. The result is an amorphous molten mass containing large amounts of solidified minerals, water, and gas inclusions. This explains why Obsidian is also known as Volcanic Glass.
Because of its volcanic origins, Obsidian is often associated with the Hawaiian volcano goddess, Pele. Pele is a fierce, wrathful warrior who is believed to have the power of turning her enemies to stone. It is the warrior aspect of Pele that concerns us with respect to Snowflake Obsidian and its protective powers. Like Pele, Snowflake Obsidian has the strong energy of a warrior prepared to ward off all evil and negative influences from the wearer. Simply holding a piece of Snowflake Obsidian in your auric field wil create a powerful shield between you and any undesirable energies or negative forces. However, a powerful warrior needs more than just a protective shield. To that end, Snowflake Obsidian aids in maintaining clear mental focus, and emotional well-being. It is a stone of pure intention as a good warrior always has a pure heart and works for the highest good of the universe. Snowflake Obsidian is also an excellent grounding stone, aiding the wearer in maintaining balance and moderation at all times.
