Lava Rock (also known as Basalt) is an intense mineral that forms when gasses in magma begin to solidify and harden into rock. These stones are found all around the world and are one of the oldest and most abundant minerals on Earth. Its origins play a key roll in the stone’s healing properties. Lava Rock is famous for its grounding and calming qualities that can teach us about depth, intensity, and change. This stone works well in stabilizing and anchoring the root chakra. When the root chakra is in sync with all other chakras you will begin to feel grounded, safe and secure. This is due to the stone's strong connection with the Earth.
