Lava stone is made from cooled lava which is actually known as Basalt; the igneous rock that is formed from the rapid cooling of basaltic lava exposed to the surface, (or near the surface), of the planet. Basalt has a very porous nature which means it is lightweight due to the many holes and bubbles held within.

Lava rock has some very interesting associations. Since it has spent most of its time in a molten state underground, it is thought that Lava stone carries the powerful grounding energy of the earth, and the motivating, creative energy of fire. It is thought to work with the Solar Plexus Chakra, and aid in any transformations that may be happening in your life.
