The beautiful country of Iceland, formed 24 million years ago, is situated between Europe and America. This island of fire and ice is always active, and geologically, is the Earth's youngest country. The Earth being almost 4.6 billion years old, if made in an hour, Iceland would have appeared just before midnight.
The black and light lava, cooled down from the molten core, is truly a unique crystal/stone to work with. Once liquid and hot, it has hardened to a unique structure, giving them a rare history for stones.
Within the land of the country Iceland, the lava has gone through states of fire, cooled by air and steam, solidified and held by earth, and when emerged, comes in contact with water and sea. If there was a stone to work with the elements, this was it.
A stone of strength and fertility, lava provides stability in times of change. This stone helps to dissipate anger and provide guidance and understanding as it assists one in "bouncing back". A very grounding stone, the black stone will strengthen our connection to Mother Earth.
Because it is from the youngest land to be formed, and is still till today, being formed (remember Eyjafjallajokull?), it can be termed that this is one of the most energetic and pure lava you can find - fresh from the Earth's oven!
We have one large piece and 6 small pieces and because we won't be able to have an opportunity to get them again anytime soon, once they're gone, they're gone! We do hope they go to wonderful owners who manage to work well with their amazing properties!
This is just one of the many hand-picked crystals we have at the store. Come down to take a look at our ever-evolving selection!
