Lava rock, also known as volcanic rock or basalt, is an igneous rock formed from the solidification of molten lava.

  1. Color: Lava rock typically ranges from dark gray to black, but it can also exhibit shades of red, brown, or even green depending on its mineral composition and oxidation state.

  2. Hardness: Lava rock generally has a hardness ranging from 5 to 6 on the Mohs scale, making it relatively durable. However, its hardness can vary slightly depending on its specific mineral composition.

  3. Clarity: Lava rock is typically opaque, meaning it does not allow light to pass through. It may contain small vesicles or gas bubbles trapped during the cooling process, which can give it a somewhat porous appearance.

  4. Luster: Lava rock often exhibits a dull to matte luster, although some varieties may have a slightly more vitreous or glossy appearance depending on their mineral content and surface finish.

  5. Density: The density of lava rock can vary depending on its porosity and mineral composition, but it typically ranges from 2.6 to 3.0 grams per cubic centimeter.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Lava rock is believed to have grounding properties, making it useful for stabilizing and balancing the emotions. It is often associated with the root chakra and is used for promoting strength, courage, and resilience. Lava rock is also commonly used as a diffuser for essential oils due to its porous nature, allowing it to absorb and retain the scent of oils for an extended period.
