Snowflake Obsidian, sometimes referred to as ‘Apache Tears’, is a volcanic black glass containing white 'snowflake' crystal patterns of the mineral cristobalite, originated due to partial crystallisation of the glass. It was named after Obsius, a Roman who discovered a similar stone and is found in Italy, Scotland, Mexico and the USA. It contains tiny bubbles of air along the layers which produce interesting effects that result in the many varieties of Obsidian.
