Lava beads refer to beads that are made from volcanic material, cut and faceted into a variety of shapes and sizes. Lava beads are very lightweight, and most tend to float since they are made of hardened magma and ash. As a result, they can only be produced in areas where volcanic material is available. Depending on the area and the mineral content of the lava, the lava beads will either be very dark in colour and close to black, reddish-brown or reddish grey.
Lava rock is the physical embodiement of fire. It started as molten lava and formed into rock.
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, beacuse 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.
