Lava stones are formed when volcanoes erupt. The lava shoots out of a volcano and runs down it's side. Once this incredibly hot liquid rock dries, it becomes a lava stone. Because of these processes, the lava stone is considered to be a stone of rebirth. The lava stone is also known for being a grounding stone, one that can balance the emotions and bring about calmness and strength. It’s believed to help keep tempers in check and also help its wearer to work through problems in a logical way.
These natural stones are charcoal-black in colour, with a unique porous texture and have been used in jewellery making since ancient times.
