A common question asked for those making jewellery is where to buy Lava Beads in Malaysia. There are very few places where you can buy Lava Beads in Malaysia, namely at some jewellery or craft shops, but the selections are very limited. Most of the time, you can only find them in one or two sizes as these places usually sell ready made jewellery with the lava beads.
As we have been creating lava bead bracelets and necklaces for a few years now, we have tried to source them locally but with little luck. Now, at Green Daun, we carry many sizes and shapes of lava beads but no longer carry the coloured lava beads due to the colour fading. Original lava beads are black in color and to get colored lava beads, you need to bleach them before chemically dying them to the desired colors.
What are Lava Beads?
Lava stones are one of the oldest and most frequently found stone in world which has been used by almost all cultures around the world. History has also mentioned the Native Americans using these stones and beads before going to war. It is also fairly new in its application as a decorating material or jewellery, gaining popularity in the past decade or so.
Lava Beads are formed from the lava rock which is actually made up of basalt, type of igneous rock that is formed during a volcanic eruption. The porous nature of the lava beads means that they have many holes and bubbles, which also makes them very lightweight hence very comfortable to wear. This also makes them ideal for jewelry making as they can be easily threaded. Their irregular surfaces are characteristic of the lava bead, making each bead unique.
Lava Beads have a rough texture, which can be quite abrasive, therefore the beads that are sold for jewelry making purposes are treated with paraffin wax to make them smooth. The coating of paraffin also gives the lava beads a dark coloring while the overall bead also works as a diffuser.
