These unscented porous beads are great carriers for essential oil aromatherapy jewelry.
- Rudraksha (or Rudraksh) Beads are seeds of the fruit of rudraksha trees.
- Black Lava Stone Beads are cut from basalt, a type of igneous rock formed during volcanic eruptions. Due to their holes and bubbles, lava stone beads add great texture, but not a lot of weight, to jewelry designs. Lava stone is naturally rough in texture, and our beads appear to be treated with a paraffin wax to make them smooth to the touch - plain basalt would be rather abrasive!
- White "Lava" Stone Beads: Natural lava (basalt) is only available in shades of black and brown. All white and other colors that are commercially sold as lava are a similar stone (likely pumice, which is also volcanic). Due to their unknown makeup, we don't recommend heating white "lava".
