Lava and Smoky Quartz Ring Wrapped with Bronze Wire | Sizes 7.5 and 8
Lava rock is created by rapidly-cooling lava with many gas bubbles inside, which create a porous quality. Lava stone is said to help one "cool down" - dissipating anger and bringing calm. In addition, it is said to be a very grounding stone. Lava rock can also be used as an essential oil diffuser. Simply add a drop or two to the bead and let it soak in - the scent will last for a day or two, as it dissipates. Once the scent is gone, you can add some more of the same or choose a different one. There is no need to "clean" the stone in between essential oils.
Smoky quartz is a great crystal for grounding and for calling in Earth energy. It is also a fantastic stone for clearing negativity, or absorbing negative energy. It can help with feelings of ungroundedness, emotional upset, and difficulty in communicating. Smoky quartz is also said to provide psychic protection as well as ward off bad dreams.
