Collection: Lava Stone

Lava Stone, also known as basalt, is an igneous rock formed from the rapid cooling of basaltic lava exposed at or very near the surface of a planet or moon. The history of lava stone dates back to the formation of the Earth's crust, with basalt being one of the most abundant bedrock types on the planet.

Lava stone has been used throughout history, from ancient builders using it to create durable structures to contemporary designers incorporating it into jewelry. Culturally, it's been ascribed various metaphysical properties, often thought to bring strength and clarity.

The benefits of lava stone are both practical and aesthetic. It's known for its durability and excellent thermal insulation, making it a popular building material. In landscaping, its porous nature allows water to drain quickly, yet it retains enough moisture to support plant life. Additionally, its unique texture and appearance provide an earthy, organic quality to design, making it a favored element in architecture and jewelry.
