1. What is Lava Stone, and Where Does it Come From?
The Origin of Lava Stone
Lava stone, also known as volcanic rock, is a unique material formed through the cooling of molten lava ejected during volcanic eruptions. The volcanic activity, which is an awe-inspiring force of nature, creates the raw material for our stoneware range.
Sourcing the Earth's Treasures
At Cargo Lane, we're committed to responsible sourcing. Our lava stone is carefully selected from volcanic regions worldwide, including Indonesia, where the geological conditions foster the development of high-quality lava stone. This commitment ensures that you receive not only a piece of nature's artistry but also a sustainable and ethically sourced product.
