Question: I have a piece of scoria and even though in the outside word it has no value or use except for using it for driveways (even even where I live they put it on the ground when it snows) I feel it has a healing property and was wondering if scoria would be considered lava rock as far as healing properties go. Thank you for your time and co-operation!

Answer: Hi Liz, I noticed you're from Flagstaff. We had a chance to visit that area a few years back and I have to say it's beautiful out there (and oooh you're so close to Sedona!)

Anyways, back on track. There are many different types of rocks that form from volcanoes and Scoria is a common one. It can be found throughout North America and is commonly used as a landscaping material.

In my opinion Scoria, and any other rock that forms as a result of a volcano eruption is "Lava Rock" and has the energetic and healing properties associated with it.

Lava rock, to me, is an overlooked stone in the metaphysical world. I personally absolutely love it. I ran into it for the first time about five years ago when I purchased a bulk quantity of lava rock beads for making crystal jewelry with.

I immediately fell in love with it. It has primal energies of the earth mother, because lava rock has spent so much time deep, deep, deep under the earth in a molten state before coming forth into the world.

It also has strong associations with fire and third chakra energy. (Since I'm a fire sign I grooved with it right away!) I'm glad to see I'm not alone in the world for my appreciate of lava rocks.

I would say, enjoy your Scoria, and yes, it carries the same metaphysical associations that you'll see more commonly termed as lava rock.

Lava Love
by: Eagle-Firewolf

I had a wonderful vision about 2 weeks ago and it was to make a Tibetan prayer Mala out of Lava rock and carved bone beads.
I am an avid Firewalker and Sundancer.
i Love the feel of my Lava and the energy is just beautiful.
