I love to use lava rocks to ground my root chakra, placing them between my legs as I meditate, or placing them on my heart chakra to open myself to the healing power of love as I lie in Savasana. Many of my friends use lava rocks to make jewelry that encapsulates the tremendous energy of the earth.
Lava hearts may form as 2000-degree basalt flows from underneath the surface of the Big Island of Hawaii, spurts, ebbs and then cools. Once covered by the sea, marine creatures such as limpets or other snails may attach to the pieces of lava as well. Also, these as-found creations of Nature often contain the yellow-green Quartz crystals called citrine that is created as the lava cools. I imagine that these hearts are bursting with love to be shared.
