Where to Buy Lava Beads in Malaysia

Lava beads have become a trend in bracelet making in Malaysia over the last few years, where nowadays, you can find them being sold at a number of bazaars and markets in Malaysia.

This trend has created opportunities for fashion jewellery and not only women can wear them, but also men.

There are sellers who specially make lava bead bracelets for men where they are incorporated with other types of crystal beads or charms.

At our retail shop, we sell the lava beads in individual pieces, and in different sizes as they range from 3mm to 20mm in diameter per stone. Please note we no longer do wholesale for these.

A common question asked for those making jewellery is where can you buy loose lava beads. 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 colored lava beads due to the color 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 actually volcanic rocks, and 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.

Lava Bead Properties

Lava beads are believed to promote strength and fertility, in other words, it is a grounding stone that is believed to strengthen one’s connection to Mother Earth.

Because of its grounding qualities, the lava bead is great for calming the emotions. For Spirituality, Lava beads are fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the center of Earth.

Typically, lava beads are recommended to be worn in close contact with the skin, if not directly on the skin as it gives easy access for the energy to flow clearly. Some of the best ways to use this is with jewellery like lava bracelets, necklaces or even ear rings.

Essential Oil Diffuser Lava Bracelets

One of the new jewellery designs and trends in the market now is the essential oil diffuser jewellery in Malaysia, where lava beads are used as the main diffuser.

This is replaced by the cheap sponge balls that usually come with the pendants. According to many users, the sponge tends to dry up faster, hence the lava is much better for this.

You can simply drop your essential oils onto the lava bead where the scents can last a good two to three hours. Some unique essential oil scents can even last for a few days as we have tested this.

Faux Lava Beads
Here is what fake lava beads look like.

Please note that when you see someone selling lava diffuser jewelry, and they use the light colored lava stones, those are all fake lava or man-made lava balls.

Problem is that many people do not have proper knowledge on what they sell. Just because China mentions that the colored ones are real lava, everyone believes it.

People just want to sell, and no research is done, which is really sad. So when you see a light pastel blue, pink or beige lava stone, it is 100% fake. Do not be easily fooled by this.

Wholesale Lava Beads in Malaysia

At one time, we used to do wholesale for lava beads in Malaysia, but as of January 2018, we no longer provide wholesale. We sell the beads individually and you can buy as little as one bead.

The reason for this is that some sizes are hard to obtain from the reputable suppliers. Hence we rather not take the risk by selling wholesale.
