Obsidian is volcanic glass, technically not a mineral since it is not crystalline in structure. It can come in different colors, depending upon impurities within. Tiny bubbles that align with the lava flow can give a sheen of gold or rainbow color. Snowflake obsidian gets its appearance from small clusters of cristobalite, forming the “snowflakes”. Obsidian can form a blade of as little as 3 nanometers, making a knife sharper than a steel scalpel.
