Lava Rock, also known as "Basalt". Because this stone comes from such raw energy of flowing lava and 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. Lava Rock is a great stone to use with your favorite essential oils. Its surface is able to hold and slightly absorb those essences. When you can combine various beautiful crystals and lava rock with the powerful essence of oil, you've got a potentially powerful tool in your arsenal.
