These are all types of obsidian, they are all related very closely to each other.
Obsidian is a form of volcanic glass, it has been used as glass by ancient cultures. Some call it smoky tears or Apache Tears, as it is said to resemble a tear when held up to the light.
Snowflake obsidian is a solid black stone, often it will have white or grey "snowflakes" cover the black stone. Mahogany obsidian is very similar in appearance to snowflake obsidian, the difference is that in mahogany obsidian the spots are brown instead of white or grey. Gemstone cutters will spend time selecting and looking at the rock before cutting to choose the most interesting patterns for the making of jewellery.
Silver sheen obsidian is black-grey with a chatoyant flash. It is the rarest of the obsidians.
Obsidian is said to reduce stress and dispel negativity when worn. Some believe it may be effective in improving blood flow and in pain management.
A crystal or gemstone pendulum is a simple way to access Divine guidance, allowing you to make decisions or achieve personal growth. Another popular use for pendulums is to aid in choosing new crystals that are right for you to use. Pendulums are very accurate, if used correctly.
The pendulum connects to your intuition and responds to electromagnetic energy, notifying you of chakra imbalances and allowing you to begin healing. If it moves clockwise, then that chakra is open and balanced, but if it moves counter-clockwise there may be a blocked energy. If used for guidance, it will move in a variety of ways that you will learn to interpret over time. You want the pendulum to tell you how it shows yes and no, so start small and ask it questions you already know the answers to. Then work up to using it to divine the answers to things you do not know. If you are extremely skeptical, you may not see results. Just relax your mind and tell yourself to allow the process to happen. Then do it again. Most people find they get a reaction straight away.
