I just realized today that a pendant that I have had for years (got it as a present when I was around 5 years old) is not just a "nice polished rock", but actually a snowflake obsidian! 😅
Does snowflake obsidian has some special properties or is it the same general properties for any obsidian?
I have sent the photos to your email.
Hi Polina, Yes, Snowflake Obsidian certainly does have great properties! It is a powerful cleanser of the body, heart, mind, and spirit of toxicities. It also helps alleviate fear, anxiety and in some cases pain. I have posted one of the photos of your pendant below. It would be perfect to wear if you have anything worrying you.
Good morning from New Zealand
My question is: How does one cleanse the crystal after its been worn by another person or would it need cleansing? My birth sign is Sagittarius and she is a Scorpio
Good Morning from a New Zealander temporarily based in the USA lol
You may cleanse obsidian in water overnight, then place in the sun during the day. Adding sea or rock salt to the water can add to the cleansing process.
