I really love Lava stones because they are the only stones one really gets to witness the production of. Other stones take too long and happen underground. But, these stones are made suddenly in an explosion. Once things have cooled there's beautiful black rock remaining. Amazing.
These black beads are 8mm and round. Because they are natural there may be some slight variations to size and shape. These beads are full of little pits formed when the heat escapes the stone. Beautiful textured stone.
Choose 6mm beads, 8mm Beads, or 10mm beads. some variation in size may occur, as they are a natural material.
Hole size between 1.5 and 2mm.

These have a wax coating on them. If you would like to remove the coating to use with essential oils the process is easy. Simply get a pot of boiling hot water and lower the beads in, they only need to be in for a second or two before being pulled out. This will melt and loosen the wax. Dry them on a clean towel. You may want to repeat once or twice to make sure all the wax has been removed. Do not leave the beads in the boiling water for extended periods.
After this your beads will be ready to take on essential oil.
