Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed in swiftly cooling lava that has a high silica content. Color in obsidian varies, depending on impurities in the parent lava formation. Golden sheen obsidian is formed when patterns of gas bubbles are aligned along layers created by the flowing lava before it solidified. Snowflake obsidian (also called “flowering obsidian”) gets its name and patterns from cristobalite (a type of quartz) inclusions formed in the obsidian as it devitrifies.
