Lava stones are not really officially recognized as gemstones. In fact, from a geological point of view, they are not gemstones at all! We call them lava stones since this sounds so much better than volcanic rock or pumice stone or igneous rock. Lava stones are some of the oldest and most abundant stones in the world and have been a part of human history and jewellery from before written history.
The lava stones are formed when volcanoes erupt. Imagine the lava shooting out of a volcano and pouring down the sides. When all that hot liquid eventually dries it forms lava stones. Typically black but also grey and brown, the stones have a porous surface with a honeycomb appearance.
The benefits of wearing lava stones are vast, especially since we can diffuse the stones with our favourite essential oils. For instance, they can help people with allergies. For example, if you suffer from a runny nose, you can put some essential oils that help with respiratory health onto your lava beads and wear them throughout the day. This can keep you feeling refreshed and fight the allergies you have.
The lava stone is typically like other healing gemstones. It’s recommended you wear your lava stone as close to the skin as possible. This allows better absorption, giving it easier access so that the energy can flow. To clear negative emotions, it’s said you should wear a bracelet so that the stones are close to your pulse. Or a necklace so that the stones are close to your heart.
