- Negative energies picked up from individuals or crowds.
- Emotions, especially when locked in by painful memories.
You Can Also Use This Necklace to:
- Clear the way for deeper healing.

Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald is a gemstone therapy tool for self-discovery. When you wear this necklace, it can help you let go the unwanted energies that dampen your spirits, cloud your true self-expression, and hold you back physically, emotionally, and mentally. It works by dissolving the resonant frequencies that bind unwanted energies to your body and aura. It also feeds these energies in a way that compels them to let you go. Once released from these unwanted energies, you are free to express yourself more authentically.
When you place this necklace on certain areas of your body, you can begin to feel these areas becoming clearer and freer. Pressures you might not have known were weighing upon the area are lifted. Memories associated with the area may come to mind and emotions may be released. Wearing the necklace during the day gives you constant support for letting go particularly malicious or long-standing unwanted energetic adversaries.
Purpose of Emerald
Symbiotic Emerald supports and enhances the work of Snowflake Obsidian. This green gem:
- Vitalizes the physical body and its organs, so they are more capable of letting go unwanted energies.
- Purifies the vibrations of physical tissue, which means it helps dissipate unwanted energies from those tissues.
- Neutralizes unwanted energies in the body and aura so they can easily and harmlessly dissipate into the atmosphere.
Without Emerald, Snowflake Obsidian can dislodge unwanted energies and shift them around, but it is unlikely they will be dissipated or let go.
In the back story, the Guardian of Obsidian says that wearing this necklace “is not for the meek and timid. It asks a degree of bravery to let go the masks that belie your true authentic self.” If you would like to work with this necklace, but are concerned that it may be too powerful at first, we suggest you start with the 8-mm variety. Also, the greater the carat weight of the Emerald present in the necklace, the easier its effects should be.
Note:We sort our Snowflake Obsidian into three separate batches, each with a different amount of white. See the pictures to the left to help you choose between Flurry, Snowfall, and Blizzard.
Which Necklace Should I Choose?
Flurry: if you intend to use the necklace primarily for a specific physical area. Placements on that area will reach more deeply into the tissues than the other varieties, for a more thorough clearing. When you wear Flurry as a necklace, it will encourage release from the core of your being, deep within the physical body.
Blizzard: for systemic conditions, aura clearing, and entity contamination. It is preferred for target area placements when unwanted emotions and memories are clearly involved.
Snowfall: if you’re not sure which to choose and have uses for both of the other varieties.
If you’re thinking that you may eventually get more than one type of necklace, start with Blizzard or Snowfall. Once you have addressed the unwanted energies in the aura, take the clearing to the next, deeper level, with Flurry (or with Snowfall if you’ve started with Blizzard).
How Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald Works
Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald has a unique way of helping the body release unwanted energies. Rather than vitalizing the eliminatory systems or alerting the body of a toxic presence, Snowflake Obsidian works with the unwanted energies themselves.
When you wear Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald, it does three things to help you purge unwanted energies:
- Snowflake Obsidian dissolves the resonant frequency that anchors unwanted energy to your body. Meanwhile, Emerald strengthens your body’s defenses and resilience, and increase the flow of life-giving energies moving through you, so it’s easier to keep the released energies at bay.
- Snowflake Obsidian energy feeds the unwanted energies attached to your body and aura. This gem’s energy satisfies the unwanted energies so that they don’t hunger for whatever attracted them in the first place. Meanwhile, Emerald feeds your body and aura with nourishing green ray. As a result, the unwanted energies are easier to let go.
- Snowflake Obsidian dislodges the unwanted energies, so that its easier for Emerald energy to dissipate and neutralize them. The white Cristobalite energy builds bridges for the leftovers to be released upward and outward into the surrounding atmosphere.
Ridding Unwanted Energies Vs. Protecting Yourself From Them
This necklace is best when you’ve already picked up unwanted energies and want to be rid of them. On the other hand, to protect yourself from unwanted energies, wear White Beryl/Turquoise. The White Beryl/Turquoise necklace provides ample white light, which acts like a mirror to deflect unwanted energies. It also raises your vibrations to create an inhospitable environment for negativity.
Snowflake Obsidian is a combination of Black Obsidian (volcanic glass) and white Cristobalite. Cristobalite has the same chemical formulas as Quartz (SiO2), but with a distinct crystalline structure. Therapeutic quality spheres should have distinct patches of white to gray Cristobalite on a deep black background. Patches of Cristobalite can vary in size.
We have identified three varieties of Snowflake Obsidian based on the amount of Cristobalite. The common and most abundant variety has a balance of white on black. We call this variety “snowfall.” A variety that has densely packed patched of Cristobalite we affectionately call “blizzard.” The third one, called “flurry,” has fewer patches on a significantly greater background of Black Obsidian.
In my effort to keep this necklace as affordable as possible, my original prototype had only two Emeralds. However, I found that this design helped my body release more unwanted energies than my immune system could handle and I ended up not feeling very well. There wasn’t enough Emerald to support my body through the releases. So we thought about adding two more. But four would clearly put the emphasis of this necklace’s effects on the physical body when Snowflake Obsidian can assist the subtle bodies as well. We decided on six Emeralds because this number supports self-mastery—in this case, of one’s ability to let go unwanted energies and keep oneself clear of them.
Here are some of my journal entries regarding this necklace:
I’ve been working with Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald almost every evening for a few months (at the time of this writing). I have found it to be one of the most useful tools in my Gemstone Therapy pharmacy.
My favorite way to use it is to sleep with it, as I know it will do its job without my having to think about it or work too hard. Usually, this makes me feel more refreshed in the morning. After having slept with it (without any particular intention) for several weeks in a row, I found that I was no longer waking up as refreshed. So I kept it aside for two days, and resumed using it. That short break was all I needed to begin feeling its clearing benefits once again.
If I use it to focus on a particular area, I can sometimes tune in to the types of energies being released. One time, I placed it on an area I considered perfectly healthy: my left arm. I drifted into a lucid state and soon memories of my childhood emerged. I recalled times when I had been struck on my arm and when someone had held it to restrain me. Those memories were so old! Yet each had emotions attached that I needed to release. Apparently, I still needed to find peace with these experiences of long ago. I had no idea how much unwanted energies in the form of discomforting memories and emotions I was carrying in theses otherwise healthy tissues.
Here’s another special experience I’ve had with this necklace. On this day, as I lay in bed with a migraine, I pressed the Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald against a point of pain on my neck. I slipped into an area of great vastness that had little life energy. I realized I had moved my awareness into the pain itself. The area was filled with dark, stagnant energy. I invited in the light, and noticed that when I did so, the gems were able to suction out the stale “air.” It then occurred to me that I should identify what level of manifestation the stagnation originated. (This technique is taught in our Practitioner Training.) It was the systems level. I identified the exact system involved, and placed its vitalizing gems on its window. Within a few minutes, the pain was almost completely gone.
The Guardian of Obsidian suggested we consider this gemstone combination a tool for self-discovery. I have certainly found it so.
How to Locate Negative Energy Pools
This is a good way to get to know the energies of Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald when you first obtain the necklace.
Hold the necklace in a bunch in your hand and hold your hand in front of you. After several seconds, invite the necklace to start following your body’s energy flows. Allow the necklace to travel around your body until it sets down on an area. Hold the necklace at this location. You may feel the necklace push away from your body within a few seconds, or the necklace may seem to want to stay glued to the area, or move to another one. A push-away movement signals that a significant amount of this pool of energies has released. If you wish, use the necklace to identify and release yet another pocket of them.
If the necklace wants to linger, you may sleep with the necklace bunched over this area for a more complete clearing.
Use Energy Clearing Spray
To speed up the process of release that Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald initiates, use the Energy Clearing spray on the area you have identified as needing treatment. Spray first toward the target area and then away from it. Also spray overhead and let the mist rain down upon you. This will clear associated unwanted energy that may be located elsewhere than the target area. For a more intensive clearing, Gemstone Therapy Institute students and practitioners can perform an energy extraction at this location using the White Beryl/Turquoise wand.
Comparison: Energy Clearing Spray, White Beryl/Turquoise, and Snowflake Obsidian
GEMFormulas’ Energy Clearing spray helps your body and aura release unwanted energies by purifying, uplifting, and bringing in white light to your body and aura. Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald works directly with the unwanted energy itself, encouraging it to let go its hold so the wearer can be free of it. Working with the necklace and the spray together is an ideal combination.
Wear the Necklace When You Sleep
This is my favorite way to benefit from Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald. Sleep is an opportunity to let go. I always feel more refreshed in the morning when I’ve taken the necklace to bed with me the night before. I’ve also had success placing the necklace on points of pain, and waking up the next morning with significant relief.
Wearing the Necklace During the Day
This option is suggested when you want to clear longstanding or insidious unwanted energies, or if you are working on a certain condition and want the energetic support that Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald can provide. In this case, wear the necklace as much as possible, and, when bathing, keep it within three feet of your body.
Wear Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald with Another Therapeutic Necklace
If you pair Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald with another therapeutic necklace, it can clear the pathway for that other necklace to work more efficiently.
We feel that a bracelet alone would not provide enough mass to obtain the intended benefits of the Snowflake/Emerald combination. However, for practitioners on a budget, a special-ordered Flurry bracelet can be used in sessions when clients have significant disharmony in a target area. You would place the bracelet on the target area while performing the Negative Energy Extraction Technique using the White Beryl/Turquoise wand. This technique is taught in the Gemstone 101 workshop and also in the “Aura Nourishing and Clearing” E-learning course.
To develop the GEMFormulas’ necklaces, Isabelle consults with her Gemstone Therapy teachers in the higher planes or the gemstone guardians in charge of the gemstones used. Here, Isabelle shares some of her personal experiences behind the scenes in the development of this necklace.
The first time I met the Guardian of Obsidian, I was just about to fall asleep and was already wandering about the inner worlds. We had a lovely conversation and I really believed I would remember it in the morning. After all, it was too special to forget. But like a dream not recorded, it drifted into a sea of unrecalled memories. When I saw him next, I promised myself I’d be prepared with a notebook. However I did recall that he was wearing many layers of clothing made of brown and tan mesh-like fabric. Unlike many guardians, his appearance didn’t match his gemstone. He explained that this was because he oversaw many types of obsidian, and that guardians simply did not always dress like their charges.
The second time I met him, I was seeking him out to learn more about Snowflake Obsidian. I found the guardian sitting on a lava boulder beside the volcano Kilauea. Beyond the blackened rock lay a forest of lush Hawaiian vegetation and then the blue sea against a bluer sky.
The guardian began his discourse immediately. “Like any living organism, Earth is involved in letting go its physical wastes and unwanted energies. The human intestine plays a similar role for releasing physical waste. Energetically, the body releases when the lungs exhale into the surrounding air, cells dissipate into the supra-physical aura, and the root chakra discharges into the Earth.”
Our proximity to Kilauea made me realize that he was comparing the human eliminatory processes to that of the Earth. Namely, volcanoes played a significant role in helping the Earth let go its excesses and wastes.
“Nevertheless,” he said, “the body still holds onto a great deal, and its storage capacity is remarkable. It will harbor physical toxins (such as from air and food), energetic toxins (like harmful electromagnetic radiation), negative emotions and thought energies (either yours or those of others thrown at you), dead parasites that it cannot dispose of, dead yeast and bacteria, undigested foods, and more. Storage areas include bones, fat, muscles, lymph, tumors, cysts, and random growths.
“Most unwanted energies are inert and can be removed as easily as one takes out the trash. You just have to do it. However, a great deal of unwanted energy shares a resonant frequency with the host. These energies are like the clothes in your closet that you haven’t worn for years, but don’t want to let go of. A reason that healthcare professionals don’t necessarily get sick when their patients have contagious diseases is because they do not have a resonant frequency that allows the infection to take hold.
“The body can also anchor unwanted energies of a more sinister type. Like parasites, these unwanted energies use the body as a source of food. The nourishment can be our own life-giving color rays or the unique life energy of any particular organ or chakra. Other types of unwanted energies can feed upon our negative emotions, thoughts, and actions. To continue their feast, these unwanted energies spur us to express negativity more often than we otherwise would. Still other types of unwanted energies seek out the satisfaction they gain when we imbibe in certain habits like gluttony, lust, smoking, and drinking.
“Eventually, the body releases unwanted energies when it has become so weakened that it cannot hold onto them, hide them, or adequately nourish them. Or, on the other hand, they also let go when the body’s vibratory rate and vitality has increased to the point that the unwanted energies lose interest. Then the body does a housecleaning.
“Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald can support the release of all types of unwanted energies, but in its own unique way.
“Snowflake Obsidian does not vitalize the eliminatory organs like Rhyolite does. Nor does it alert the body of its need to let go like Golden or Black Obsidian does. You might say Snowflake Obsidian feeds the unwanted energies. It satisfies them so that they don’t hunger for whatever your body has that attracts them.”
The guardian continued to discuss the how Snowflake Obsidian works, as explained on the webpage.
My third encounter with the Guardian of Obsidian took place a few weeks before Christmas, 2012. I had gone to bed with discomforting news weighing on my mind, and a burning sensation in my throat that had me concerned I was getting sick. But no sooner did I get comfortable under the blankets when the Guardian of Obsidian appeared and asked me if I was sure I wanted to release the Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald necklace as planned the following week. My staff was excited about it, as we hadn’t released a new necklace in several months. But I sensed we should wait until 2013, and I gave him a string of reasons why.
To my surprise, my decision didn’t cause the Guardian to leave. Instead his presence grew stronger and I felt myself recoil. I reflected on my reaction, and realized the true reason I was hesitating to release the necklace: I hadn’t yet made friends with Snowflake Obsidian. In truth, I was afraid of the gemstone!
Even though I understood that Snowflake Obsidian was really an indicator of unwanted energies that were limiting a person, I had a lingering attitude about it, which ironically, was limiting my acceptance of this gemstone. In almost all the times this gemstone had come up for clients, cancer had been involved. In fact, it seemed to be a good indication that malignancy was present, if not physically then supra-physically. If my own body was attracted to it, did that mean I also had the disease or was prone to it? To understand my concerns, you have to know that cancer is the primary cause of death for long-term heart transplant recipients. This was a possibility I wasn’t willing to accept for myself. No wonder my heart wasn’t open to this necklace, and my energy field kept guarding against it.
If I wasn’t comfortable with the necklace, how could I share it with others? I couldn’t.
With the guardian standing nearby, I got out of bed and fetched the Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald prototype (the one with the six Emeralds). I was determined to find out if my feelings about these gemstones were justified. I lay back down in bed and held the necklace. I promised the guardian I would be objective and honest.
The gems were attracted to the front of my neck, so I held them over my sore throat. Within minutes my flu symptoms started to feel better. The weight of the cloud that had followed me to bed also lifted and I felt renewed energy. The energy flows in my body felt stronger and I knew I wasn’t going to get sick.
Moments later I was out of my body. In the blink of an eye, I found myself in Hawaii on the lava rock by the volcano Kilauea. The Guardian of Obsidian stood beside me. He reminded me that one’s own unwanted energies can linger in the aura, causing discomforting feelings until the resonance between the energies and the individual is dissolved.
He said “you can help your clients let go unwanted energies because you accept no resonant frequencies with these energies. And because you don’t react to them, they cannot establish resonance with you.
“Snowflake Obsidian may be difficult for some people to wear because it will help them become aware of unwanted energies that may have been with them for decades. Sometimes these unwanted energies define who a person is, how she reacts to circumstances and how she feels about herself.
Yet once the unwanted energy is completely jettisoned from the aura, she’ll feel better. The Emerald in the necklace will aid and speed the release by neutralizing most of the unwanted energies and preventing the rest from regaining lost ground.” He paused a moment while I digested his words.
“You wear this necklace with some trepidation because you’ve been through a great deal medically, and your body is wary of potentially discomforting experiences. Wearing Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald is not for the meek and timid. It asks a degree of bravery to let go the masks that belie your true authentic self.
“My suggestion is to regard this therapy tool as a means to help you become who you truly are, free of the unwanted energies that cloud and pollute your life energy.
“Think of the necklace in those terms rather than emphasizing or giving attention to the unwanted energies themselves. An essential key for releasing unwanted energies is indeed to give them no more attention than necessary to identify their presence. This is extremely important and points out a reason for your discomfort with the necklace. Unwanted energy thrives on attention. Give it attention and it won’t leave. Period. Rather, give attention to the growing life energy you feel as a result of wearing the Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald.”
His worlds were so true! I’d learned this time and again when doing gemstone therapy. Certain especially malicious unwanted energies would do all they could to try to scare me or catch my attention once they had been released from a client. I respond to them with no more emotion than what I feel when my pet fish nibble at my fingers when I hand-feed them. That’s also why I teach my students to keep their focus on their client when doing the White Beryl/Turquoise extractions. Attention is never given to the unwanted energies themselves. Then, once they’re released, they’re gone.
My gratitude for Snowflake Obsidian/Emerald and a deeper understanding of its benefits and purpose emerged. Yet I still wanted more personal experiences with the necklace.
Back in bed I held the gems, and with my arm stretched beside me, rested them on my right groin, which holds some degree of soreness. This was the area where doctors had, dozens of times, inserted catheters into my veins and arteries to do heart biopsies and angiograms. Within seconds of placing the gems there, emotions, memories, and random unwanted energies began to emerge from the area like smoke rising from a fire. In my mind’s eye I observed the memories of the situations that put the unwanted energies in place, and watched their release, while also letting the emotions flow through me to finally be dispersed.
I’ll admit I was in a particularly lucid state to be able to see what was coming out of the targeted area. Perhaps it was the guardian’s presence that helped, too.
