Lava stone is most likely the oldest and most frequently found stone.....in the world. It has been used by many cultures. In folk remedies lava stones were given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle.
This year I visited the Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach in Maui. This beach is breath taking with its surrounding huge lava stones, literally everywhere. In the picture below take a look at the green plant growing all over the lava stone. The entire beach had a continuous flow of this plant blanketing the lava stone. So pretty!!
