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.
