History of Lava Stone Jewelry
Lava stone is one of the oldest and most frequently found stones around the world and its origin plays a key role in the stone’s healing properties. As its name would suggest, the stone comes from the core of the earth.
The Lava Stone was used as far back as Roman times. Roman engineers used it to build the huge dome of the Pantheon and as construction material for many aqueducts.
The first time lava stones were used in jewelry was in the 18th century after the buried cities of Pompeii, were discovered in Italy and people wanted the stones as souvenirs. These common stones were made into brooches, rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings and sold to tourists.

Lava stones are light and comfortable to wear, and they look rough and unpolished. This rustic and powerful combination makes them perfect for men’s jewelry, and here at Roano , we use them primarily as beads in our men’s bracelets and necklaces. They are a very common stone and an affordable alternative to more polished and shiny black gemstones such as Onyx or Agate.
