Lava Rock, also known as basalt, is made from lava from an erupted volcano that has rised to the surface. Lava rock is formed when the erupted lava cools down and hardens. The rock has a porous texture and is lightweight compared to many other gemstones.
Properties of Lava Rock
It is believed that Lava Rock has many metaphysical properties. It is called a grounding stone. Lava comes from earth’s core, which is why it is believed that it can strengthen our bond to Mother Nature and create stability. It can also dissipate anger, calm your emotions and is a symbol of fertility.
Due to these properties, some ancient cultures would give Lava Rock to their warriors as gifts before a big battle.
