Lava Stone - Natural
Lava Stone is easily the oldest and most frequently found stone in the world; hence it’s vast usage by an endless amount of cultures. Lava Stone literally comes from the core of the Earth – fiery brimstone that bubbles to the surface and cools. Once the stone is cool, it becomes porous and black, creating the beautiful black color so many people recognize and love. This is known as basalt, and can mostly be found in the ocean. Emotionally, Lava is known for its grounding qualities and is wonderful for calming the emotions. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Spiritually, Lava Stone is extremely beneficial for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is due to the strong connection to the Earth and its creation within the center of Earth. In folk remedies, it was also given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle. Typically, recommended to be worn in close contact with the skin, if not directly on the skin so that the barrier for absorption is not blocked by anything.
