Lava stones have emotional and spiritual benefits. Since lava is known for its grounding qualities, it’s wonderful for calming the emotions. In fact, the quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming- but intense- energy. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment.
Black Agate, like all black stones, is a grounding and protective crystal. It gives a calming peace that helps those during a period of bereavement. Black Agate gives inner strength to move on and is also very helpful in keeping the peace in stressful households.
Quartz crystals are known as “master healing crystals,” crystals that can be used to heal any condition that they are needed for. Because of their unique power to take on the energy of any situation, quartz crystals are one of the single most beneficial stones that you can introduce into your life for purposes of healing. Quartz crystals are said to stimulate the immune system and help with physical energy and resiliency in the face of sickness.
Mala Prayer Beads are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This sādhanā (practice) is known in Sanskrit as Japa. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads.
