Many thanks for your interest! Here is proof that this is real snowflake:

"before and after" table for compare, source shots can be opened in full 12 mp resolution:

unprocessed source shot of this snowflake. It have much worse quality because this is only one jpeg from serie of identical shots,
and final result made from averaged stack of RAWs with custom sharpening and noise removing:
