Lava stone is probably the oldest and most frequently found worldwide. Once the stone is cool, it becomes porous and black, creating the beautiful black color so many have come to love. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. It’s believed to provide strength (physical and mental) and provides stability in times of change. A very grounding stone, black lava strengths our connection to the earth.
