Information about Lava / Basalt

The stone can be used as kitchen counter tops, or for gas fire stones, or for actually cooking on – it is remarkably heat resistant, having been created in a volcano itself.

It is sometimes used in jewellery, usually as small beads – and is often sold as tumblestones, which have a speckled appearance that looks almost like the Moon. Basalt is usually grey or black, and contains bubbles and spattered patterns on the surface and inside.
