This handcrafted statement ring features the most gorgeous piece of Snowflake Obsidian, that measures approximately 20mm x 15mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 4.5mm double ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring has then been sanded smooth and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
I have made this ring in a size 8 (Australian size P 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 SNOWFLAKE OBSIDIAN LORE:
Snowflake Obsidian is formed when the felsic lava from a volcano rapidly cools down with very minimum crystal growth. It’s basically a volcanic glass that formed as an igneous rock. The ancient Mayan priests recognized obsidian as a powerful tool for revealing what was hidden, so they created obsidian mirrors as an aid for seeing into the future and discovering hidden secrets. It is still used for this purpose today in modern mystical techniques. Snowflake Obsidian is usually black in colour, with white patches called Phenocryst. It resembles snowflakes, hence the name. A stone of purity, Snowflake Obsidian is considered by many to be an excellent stone to provide balance for body, mind and spirit. It is thought to help those who wear it recognise and release “wrong thinking” and stressful mental patterns, as well as promoting dispassion and inner centring. As well as this, Snowflake Obsidian is regarded to be a very protective stone, helping to bring safety to the physical, mental and spiritual world.
