A stone of protection, strength and fertility, Basalt / Lava Stone provides stability in times of change. It often helps to dissipate anger and provide guidance and understanding. A very grounding stone, black Lava strengths our connection to Mother Earth. Lava energy is good for our Root or base chakra, and contains the fire of the Kundalini. Natural lava rock beads include naturally-formed voids and irregular surfaces — which makes each bead unique. These beads are sold ‘by the strand’ unless specified otherwise.
