Lava Rock, also known as Basalt, is a broad term for a mineral that forms when magma from volcanoes solidifies and hardens into rock.
This stone is found worldwide and is one of the oldest and most abundant minerals on earth. The two prime elemental energies in lava rock meaning are earth and fire. At their extremes, the one is calm and steady, while the other is unpredictable and destructive. On the one hand, it offers raw assertive energy and passion, and on the other, practical restraint and balance.
This paradox of energies makes it the ideal companion stone for coping with modern-day life’s fast-paced competitiveness, while remaining calm and focused. Extremes seldom last long before balance gets restored and energies return to their midpoint, but it gives you an idea of how lava stone is infused with both seemingly opposite primal powers.
Lava is porous as well, which means it can absorb energy and fine matter, such as liquids, oils, and aromas. We can use this property in cleansing rituals as a fragrance holder by soaking essential oils into stones and wearing lava stone jewelry to absorb the negativity we pick up.
In ceremonies and rituals, lava stone was used mainly for protection and courage. Ceremonial artifacts, including beads, masks, animal carvings and vessels made from lava rock have been unearthed from archeological sites across the globe—some of them dating back to over 8 thousand years ago.
