Lava is a rock formed from magma erupted from a volcano. It is an igneous rock of volcanic origin. Its "primal energies" come from spending so much time deep in the Earth's core in a molten state before it is formed upon entry to the earth’s surface. Naturally porous and lightweight, Lava stones may be a rusty red or a rich black in color. Lava stones can be used for grounding, protection and making a connection to the earth. They allow us to "root" scattered energy, find focus, and bring balance to our centers by embracing practicality. Lava healing crystals help decision making, stability and strength. Lava stones are used to balance the Root Chakra.
