Fu Shou : Felicity & Longevity
The character fu is "good fortune, blessings, happiness." It denotes being happy as the result of being lucky. The character is prominently displayed on doors, often upside-down, as "turn upside-down" and a word meaning "arrive" are homophones; in other words, to say "luck upside-down" sounds like "luck is coming."
The character shou stands for longevity. In Taoism, life is everything, without which, nothing is left. So the current life (as opposed to the afterlife) is overwhelmingly valued. Thus the desire to live longer is the goal of life.
Shou and fu co-exist; to live long is to have fu.

Lava stone is easily the oldest and most frequently found stone in world and is used by many cultures.

It gives us strength and courage and allowing us stability through times of change.
It provides guidance and understanding in situations where we may need to re-evaluate the situation.
A calming stone, it is very useful in helping to dissolve anger. It helps promotes positive changes in negative attitudes.
The quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming - but intense- energy.
