The matte black lava stone in this bracelet is a perfect partner to the lustrous crystal pearls, in ombre shades of silver to deep grey. And because these are crystal (or faux) pearls, they will not be damaged by essential oils, as genuine pearls might. Lava stone, with it's velvety black surface, is a grounding stone that strengthens ones connection to Mother Earth. It offers strength, courage, and stability in times of stress. The crystal pearls are fancy enough for evening wear, yet pair just as easily with jeans.
