    Lava stones are the oldest and some of the most common stones worldwide. Lava stone is igneous volcanic rock. As the molten (liquid) volcanic rock cools, the tiny bubbles formed gives lava stone its unique textured appearance and desirability for jewelry, aromatherapy, and many other purposes. Lava Stone is associated with rebirth, the root chakra, and considered to have grounding and calming effects due to its link with the earth.

    With a MOHS hardness of 3 to 3.5, some care is needed when working with and designing with lava stone since they are somewhat soft and easily scratched. The unique porous patterns found in Lava Stone have been use by artists, jewelers and  for aromatherapy to diffuse essential oils and to enhance designs. Lava stone is found worldwide where volcanos have been active including Asia, Europe, North and South America, Africa, island countries, and New Zealand
