Lava stone is probably the oldest and most frequently found stone in the world which is likely why it’s used by almost all cultures. The stone comes from the core of the earth, this is the fiery brimstone that bubbles to the surface and cools. Once the stone is cool, it becomes porous and black, creating the beautiful black color so many have come to love. Known for its emotionally calming and spiritually grounding effect because of its strong connection to the earth. In legend this stone was given to warriors to help them remain calm in battle.
