Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Trollbeads Black Friday Snowflake Obsidian!
Trollbeads Snowflake Obsidian is this year’s Black Friday bead. This is a faceted grey and black stone and is a standard size of 14 mm high x 7 mm wide. This is a nice addition to the Trollbeads stone collection. I was hoping for a sparkly bead like the last few years, but I don’t mind adding more stones to my collection, too. Snowflake Obsidian retails for $63 / €63
Snowflake Obsidian is a natural black volcanic glass containing the mineral cristobalite which gives it the snowflake pattern and through volcanic process becomes a true stone. This is a great stone for meditation as it is soothing and promotes calmness. It is also said to help the wearer release and dispel negativity and bring balance.
I was lucky to receive a really nice stone with lots of snowflake patterns throughout. Being that these are natural stones, you will find that they vary a good bit.
Here on the side you can really see all the snowflakes in my stone.
Here I have combined the Obsidian with Pearls, Guiding Star and Star of Wisdom.
I really love the Snowflake Obsidian with Onyx, Stardust, and Come Together.
Here I tried it with some grey-ish beads from the fall collection. Snowflake Obsidian, Stepping Stones, Mountain Climb, Dancing Dragons and Neverending.
I wish my labradorite were greyer as I think they would look nice together.
I think it works well with some of the faceted black base beads from fall 2017. Here you see Snowflake Obsidian, Voice of Wind, Acorns, Noble Deer, and Wise Owl.
I think it also looks nice with the two recently released Stones Pyrite and Steel Hematite. Silvers are Trollbeads Response and Momentum.
Over all, I think this is a nice bead and if you collect Trollbeads Stones this will be a great bead to add to your collection. If you like wearing stones for their healing energies then this is one you will want to wear as we could all use a bit more positive energy and balance.

As always, I love hearing from you all and would love to know your thoughts on this bead? Will you be buying this Black Friday’s Bead? Leave me a comment below and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving ❤
I also was hoping for another sparkly bead, as in the last few prior years. Still, I preordered this one from a live image. I selected a mostly black one with a light scattering of flakes. I plan to wear it on a Trollbeads cuff, alongside the snowman and Blizzard, hopefully to represent a dark night with a gentle snowfall. I like your full-out snowstorm though!

Oh Mary, this sounds beautiful! I love the idea of a few flurries or gentle snowfall.
