Lava is molten rock expelled by a volcano during an eruption. Its composition includes silicate minerals, feldspars, olivine, pyroxenes, amphiboles, micas, and super-heated ultramafic. Lava is truly a force to be reckoned with. It promotes strength and aids us in feeling intimately connected to the Earth and its power. Given its nature and source, lava offers us the best of grounding, centering, and healing properties, calming and soothing our emotions. It is a stone of rebirth, helping us shed unnecessary layers of emotional attachment, while stabilizing the Root Chakra. We work with skulls because they are our ethereal companions. Much like our ancestors, they hold secrets and carry wisdom. Even after we die, it is said that skulls can hold and channel what they have learned from us in life. They are capable of transferring this information and wisdom to others. These lava skulls are an mystic reminder that we must remain strong during trying times, not only for ourselves but to honor those who have come before us. Display yours with pride on your ancestral altar, or offer one to a friend who needs to burn through old memories or stuck energies.
