Hawaiian Fire Goddess of volcanos and fire. When I first saw these
lava beads, an image of this necklace popped into my head and I knew
who had sent it. My element is Fire and altho I have never been to
the Islands, I have received messages from Pele before. This necklace
was made in Her honor and dedicated to Her. Perfect for anyone who
connects strongly with Pele. Her message is that fire can purify,
releasing us from the old to make room for the new. She helps you
get in touch with your true passion and charge up your motivation
and excitement. She helps you feel everything on a deeper level and
to be unafraid of taking action to manifest your heart's desire.
Highly protective stone. Hawaiians used lava rocks to build heaiu,
which were centers of religious and magical activities such as healing.
A volcano is an ancient symbol of creation. When erupting it represents
the four elements at work: earth & fire mix to create lava, which
possess liquidity (water), and smoke (air) rises from the center.

Coral's connection to the Divine:
Coral has played an important role in the religious and magical
rites of many cultures throughout the Pacific Islands. Often placed
on graves to guard the deceased, and temples were often built of
lava rocks and coral. Red coral was considered by the Pueblo Indians
to be one of the four element stones. The ancient Egyptians placed
pieces of coral in tombs as a protection against evil spirits because
they believed that each piece truly contained a drop of divine blood.
According to Greek mythology, when Perseus chopped off the head
of the Gorgon Medusa, some drops of blood splashed into the sea,
and thereby solidified into coral.
