Lava Rock is a purification crystal. It is one of the premier healing stones. It is very popular and extensively used in the healing arts. It clears and purifies negative energy better than any other stone. It has amazing properties of relieving both mental and physical stress, sort of like a "stress absorber."
It is also one of the most used stones for grounding one's energy to the power of the Earth. Unless you stay grounded in the planetary energies you are likely to suffer from stress, listlessness, and feeling of being "disconnected" and alienated.
Lava Rock is associated with Libra. Wikipedia tells us that Libra (♎) is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Libra. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Libra is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered an air sign and is one of four cardinal signs.
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus (which also rules Taurus). Being the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra has been associated with the astrological seventh house.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Libra individuals. Libras are commonly referred to as feisty and fiery individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun enters Libra on the moment of autumnal equinox by definition on September 23, leaving it on October 22. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly around October 18 and November 16.
Lava Rock has Fire energy and is used in the south area of a home or room. Fire elemental energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature.
Lava Rock is one of the most common meditation crystal. Lava Rock will ground you in the Earth's energies so you are free to explore your spirit world without harm or danger. Always start a meditation with a Lava Rock stone.
Sivanaspirit.com reports in their article The Healing Properties Of Lava Stone, "Since lava is known for its grounding qualities, it’s wonderful for calming the emotions. In fact, the quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming- but intense- energy. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment."
