Lava: The "3rd Eye" stone
Volcanic lava stone beads are made up of basalt, which is a type of igneous rock formed through cooling and solidification of magma or lava. Beneath the surface of an active volcano, the temperature and the pressure are so high that it can melt even rocks. When a volcano explodes, it brings with it this liquid rock, which gradually cools and solidifies into volcanic lava stones.
Volcanic Lava stones are considered good for safety and protection as well as in getting connected to the mother earth. Lava also allows us to ‘root’ scattered energy and find focus and balance in life.
Lava stones are also used as a folk remedy for infertility and poor libido. It has multiple benefits such as treatments for menstrual cramps, back pain, reducing stress, insomnia and eliminating toxins from the body.
Onyx: Master of One’s Future Stone
Onyx was very popular with the ancient Greeks and Romans. The name is said by some to be derived from the Greek work Nux, meaning ‘fingernail’ or ‘claw’ due to the fact that most “Onyx” was a flesh tone color in those years.
The tale is that one afternoon, Cupid cut the fingernails from the divine goddess Venus, with an arrowhead while she slept, leaving clipping scattered amongst the sand and that the Fates turned them to stones. As they were no longer part of the heavenly body, they would still never perish.
