Lava Stone Black 6mm Rnd (Natural/Waxed) 16in St
There is a very light wax coat on them. Turns out all black lava beads are waxed. The wax takes the edges off a bit making them comfier and shines them up. If they are not waxed, they are grey, dull, and rougher to the touch.
As the name implies, these beads are formed from the lava which is produced when a volcano erupts. Lava stone beads are actually made up of basalt - which is a type of igneous rock that is formed during a volcanic eruption.
Lava stone is one of the oldest and most frequently found stones around the world and its origin plays a key role in the stone’s healing properties. As its name would suggest, the stone comes from the core of the earth. Because this stone comes from such a raw energy (fire), it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth. Known for its grounding and calming healing properties, lava stone is great for stabilizing the root chakra. When the root chakra is stabilized, you feel safe, anchored, and more positive.
In addition, Lava Stone is a wonderful aromatherapy essential oil diffuser. Simply add a few drops of your favourite essential oil and enjoy the added therapeutic benefits it brings.
