Lava stone beads are 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.
These particular Lava stone beads have been dyed into multiple colors including blue, purple, green, brown, red, and orange. They are in their natural porous state and with a few drops of essential oils, they would be excellent as colorful aromatherapy bead diffusers on a bracelet or necklace!
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.
