Black Lava Stone
Lava stone doesn’t really have the “look” of something that is healing; but for centuries it has been used to do exactly that. When thinking of lava stones, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s origin plays a key role in its energetic qualities.
Emotional- Since lava is known for its grounding qualities, it’s wonderful for calming the emotions. In fact, the quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming- but intense- energy. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment.
Spiritual- Lava stones are fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the center of Earth. In folk remedies, it was also given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle.
