Lava is easily the oldest and most frequently found stone in 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.
Healing Properties

Lava stone doesn’t really have the “look” of something that is healing; but for centuries it has been used to do exactly that.


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 stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is because of 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.

Q: How to Use Lava stone

Typically, lava stone (like most healing gemstones) is recommended to be worn in close contact with the skin, if not directly on the skin.

This is because the barrier for absorption is not blocked by anything.

It gives easy access for the energy to flow clearly, and usually malas and braceletsare used for this purpose.

However, lava stone can also be used in rooms in order to help with emotional clearing, or to keep things energetically balanced.
