Lava Stone comes from the core of the earth. Lava is a rock formed from magma erupted from a volcano. Lava rock is a grounding stone and can help you connect with nature. Lava stones are known for their grounding qualities, it's wonderful for calming the emotions. 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 it considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Lava stones are fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the center of earth.
Moonstone is a "stone of new beginnings." It is strongly connected to the moon and to the intuition. Like the moon, the stone is reflective and reminds us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, so everything is part of a cycle of change. Its most powerful effect is that of calming the emotions.
Moonstone calms overreactions to situations and to emotional triggers. It opens the mind to sudden and irrational impulses, serendipity and synchronicity. Care has to be taken that it does not induce illusions in response to wishful thinking.
