Lava Rock
Key Words: Fire, Fire Allies,The Phoenix
Chakra: Root(1st)
Element: Fire

Lava rock is the physical embodiement of fire.
 It started as molten lava and formed into rock.
It is the only stone that I know of that is a physical form of what was once solely fire.
It is an incredibly powerful stone for anyone born under a fire sign in their astrology, or for anyone who needs more fire in their lives.

Lava rock can be used to develop a relationship with the Fire Allies, the energy that is fire,
 bringing about swift action towards long-sought after goals.
The energy of fire is direct, powerful, impassioned, and headstrong.
 It can be very useful for those who are indecisive, timid,or who generally feel weak. 
Lava rock can also help one develop stronger ties with the earth,
 because it was once of one elemental form: fire,
and has now transmuted to anotehr elemental form: earth.

It can also be beneficial for fire signs who feel they are "too fiery", 
by bringing a natural balance with the blending of earth's grounded energies 
into the often "too quick to act" nature of fire sign people. 


Lava Stone... also known as Basalt... is the result of an eruption of a volcano at some time
 in the past, which created lava which over time cooled then solidified into these rocks.
Their stone properties relate to the way they embody the vibration of all of the four elements within them,
 as they were part of the process that created them.
As these stones also contain the powerful energy of the volcano that created them,
 this means that they are excellent to aid healing...
 especially when you are feeling depressed or lacking energy and vitality.

Rounded shaped stones  have an association with feminine energy,
and long pointed stones embody male energy.
A combination of both stones were used in the past in fertility rituals to aid conception of a child.


Lava rocks embrace both elements.
These red and black lava rocks are a wonderful tool for the Root Chakra.
They 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 center
by embracing practicality.
Lava is a rock formed from magma erupted from a volcano.
It is an igneous rock of volcanic origin.
 It's "primal energies" are evident from spending so much time deep in the Earth's core
in a molten state before it is formed upon Earth's entry.
This stone is beneficial when your 1st Root as well as the fire of the 2nd Spleen Chakra are energetically weak. They encourage stimulation.

Folk Remedies: This stone has the nurturing power of Mother Earth.
It has been used for centuries as a colorant for clothes and body paint.
Considered a fiery fertility stone, it was often given to woman who had issues of infertility or poor libido. Also, this stone was given to men on their way to war or when there was a local dispute between clans.


Feng Shui:

Red lava is used in the area of Fame and Recognition as well as the Relationship area. 
Black lava is used in the area of Career and Life Path 
as well as the Helpful People and Travel areas.

History: Volcanic rocks are among the most common rock types on Earth's surface,
 particularly in the oceans.
On land, they are very common at plate boundaries and in flood basalt provinces.
Most modern petrologists classify igneous rocks including volcanic rocks
by their chemistry when dealing with their origin. Most volcanic rocks share a number of common minerals. Differentiation of volcanic rocks tends to increase the silica (SiO2) content mainly by fractional crystallization.

Occasionally, a magma may pick up crystals that crystallized from another magma;
these crystals are called xenocrysts.
Diamonds found in kimberlites are rare but well-known xenocrysts; the kimberlites do not create the diamonds, but pick them up and transport them to the surface of the Earth.
These stones are from Mauna Loa. It is located on the Big Island of Hawaii and in addition to being the largest, with a summit nearly 13,700 feet high, it is also one of the world's most active volcanoes.
Garnet are strong crystals to aid prosperity and are good to help relationships by stimulating commitment to your partner.


I have loved the idea of combining it with Garnet...., as what the creators/makers  from ARTESANIA did ....


Properties: This stone symbolizes faith, love, devotion and trust. Garnet is most famous for balancing our emotional states. Therefore, garnet is one of the best stones for soothing emotional stress and balancing out anger that is held in and not expressed. Therefore, garnet is good for those who have anger issues directed to themselves, NOT for those who spew anger like venom or attack others with their anger (think orange or yellow stones for this condition)!
Garnet is a stone of passion. It is given as a gift of love's attraction, a gift of estranged love or a gift of quick return. Red represent love and helps the aspirant to strive for improvement in moral conduct. When Garnet is used in conjunction with the pituitary gland, can help provide past-life information. Should be placed on the center of the forehead. If carried around in the pocket and then placed on the forehead of another person, closer ties will form with that individual. Garnet is a stone of commitment.
Garnet has been used for protection against the perils of travel. It encourages a strength and therefore, personal power, which increases success, a victorious attitude and sparks the energies of creativity through our kundalini starting at the base of the Root Chakra. Garnet's emotional connection makes it most effective when placed at the 2nd or Sacral/Spleen Chakra. Known to balance out sexual energy by both increasing libido or decreasing sexual addiction. Garnet is known in Indian mythology for persistence, stamina and energizing the Kundalini fire (our fire of eternal metamorphosis).
Garnet is a good stone to have around for emotional drama, traumatic crisis or when you feel backed into a corner with no way out. Garnet will show you the way out. It is the perfect stone for clearing the Emotional Layer of the Aura. Utilize its strong support energy. Anyone dealing with depression, should always carry a piece of garnet with them as it encourages feelings of joy, hope and will power. Its fiery color drives away fatigue and stimulates the imagination.
Folk Remedies: Emotional states are connected to the water element, which are connected to the cycles of the moon and tides and therefore, has a strong relationship to a women's menstrual cycle. Therefore, garnet works well with blood issues. It was believed to be helpful with problems of poor blood circulation and strengthens the heart both in a physical manner and metaphysical approach. Garnet warms and energizes physically (and emotionally) when treating arthritis, frostbite, paralysis and is a good grounding stone. It is a remedy stone for exhaustion, low blood pressure, detoxing and strengthening blood, muscles, kidneys, gallstones. Stimulates life force and sexuality, hormone balance, antibodies, fertility, and brings vitality during the catabolic process. Hidegard Von Bingen prescribed garnet to strengthen the heart. Avoid if excess anger, impatience, high blood pressure, heat, or inflammation. Used for the assimilation of vitamins and minerals.
Feng Shui: Garnet should be used in the Northwest corner for travel or in the Center area for grounding, balance, good health, spirituality and protection, in the North for personal journeys, victory and success, and in the Southwest for partnership (always use two stones here).
Crystal Cleansing: method 1 - 8
History: Garnet, K (SiO4)3 + another metal, this stone ranges in color from deep emerald green through yellow, brown, and red (interestingly enough, never blue). They each have a different name according to color. (See below). Common to the US, but found all over the world. Garnet comes from the latin word "granum" meaning grain or seed-like. This name was derived from the tiny little seed like stones resembling pomegranate seeds, often made into jewelry. Dating as far back as the 3100 B.C.E. in Egypt where garnet was crafted into beautiful jewelry and beads for clothing, crowns and dinnerware. In the bible, garnet is mentioned as one of the 12 stones in the Breastplate of Aaron. It was believed to be used by Noah, crafted into a lantern, which lead the ark through long, dark nights. The ancient Greeks used garnet in its red form and the Persians considered it the "royal stone" carving the faces of their kings in the stone. Garnet was considered a traveler's stone, warning anyone who carried the stone of danger unseen.
