Trollbeads Snowflake Obsidian Facet

Obviously gemstones are notorious for their individual variation and this bead is no different. Most gemstones vary somewhat in size and shape but the snowflake obsidian has it’s iconic white and grey patterning. It’s aptly named for certain as the variation is immense. Firstly it’s worth noting that those patterns on these stones range from white to grey. This in combination with the fact that some are heavily patterned and some sparsely so results in stones that can feel very dark ranging to quite bright.

When choosing stones myself I place equal importance on both the shape of the stone and the pattern. I like symmetrical, chunky stones.

Trollbeads Black Friday Bead 2018 Summary

vThis bead feels very wintery and in that sense it’s absolutely perfect for the occasion. It is going to be one to choose in person or from live images just due to the enormous variation.

For anyone needing super fast styling ideas, this bead looks great with the Trollbeads Steel Hematite (find that here) from the fall collection.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the live images of the new Trollbeads Black Friday Bead 2018? What do you think of the variation and do you have strong preferences regarding this stone? Hit the comments and let me know!

    This really is a lovely rock, but one that has to be seen, pattern variation is so enormous, and so very personal. I’ve seen Snowflake rock patterns that were nauseating. πŸ™‚ I have two carved monkeys in Snowflake, and one in pumpkin Obsidian. It’s amazing rock to look at if you get the right patterns, but getting them isn’t easy.

      They definitely vary a lot but hopefully plenty of online retailers are offering live image shopping which should make life much easier πŸ™‚

    This stone has such an individual personality… big snowflakes, little flakes, heavily sprinkled or not, I think there is something for most everybody. Though it is typically seen smooth or carved and smoothed, Trollbeads has brought a refreshed and apparently more β€œglistening” effect by offering it faceted. Im loving this!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I much prefer the faceted version to the smooths. I like chunky gemstones and though I do love some of their smooth stones, they always feel a bit more like spacers to me in comparison with the faceteds.

      I agree 100% with what you say about these. The variation is so huge that there should be one to suit most tastes πŸ˜€

    Going to pass on these very pretty just not different enough from the smooth stones.

    • endangeredtrolls

      See I’m not a fan of the smooth stones in general – despite loving gemstones. I don’t like how slender they are. They feel more like spacers to me so I’m so pleased to see the faceted cut πŸ˜€

      • Emma

        I agree about how slender some are, I choose the chubby ones where possible a mix of smooth and faceted stones look fabulous together.

    Nice in faceted but it’s Black Friday, options, sales and discounts abound. This does not feel special as it is not offered at promotional price for the day therefore it can be purchased anytime in the future at the suggested retail of $65.
    Between this and the other confusing OHM promo my wallet is safe. Waiting to see what Redbalifrog and Pandora has.

    • endangeredtrolls

      They stopped the promotion price on their new Black Friday beads a couple of years ago if I remember correctly. Shimmer Royal wasn’t offered at a promo price either πŸ™‚

      I personally love the bead and think it feels very apt for the winter season πŸ™‚
