Like the fire bursting strength of a volcano, these little black porous balls of hardened lava hold many powerful healing benefits. They offer such strong healing properties that masseuses' use lava stones to bring emotional tranquillity, relaxation and a sense of calmness.
Lava Stone is easily the oldest and most frequently found stone in the world; hence, it’s used by nearly 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 a beautiful black colour so many have come to love. This is known as basalt, and can mostly be found in the ocean.
Lava stone doesn’t really have the “look” of something that is healing, but for centuries it has been used to do exactly that. When thinking of lava stones, it’s important to keep in mind that its origin plays a key role in its energetic qualities.
Emotional - Since lava is known for its grounding qualities, it’s wonderful for calming the emotions. In fact, the quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming- but intense- energy. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment.
Spiritual- Lava stones are fantastic for stabilising and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the centre of the Earth.
