Jell-o fracture

You know, I was eating jell-o when I noticed something about the way they broke when you scoop it with a spoon. They seem to break in a pattern that ends up similar to an igneous rock called an obsidian:

I wonder if the process that leads them to break that way are similar, or if it is a big coincidence.
