Lava Rock

In January 1973 a large eruption happened on the Island of Heimaey – Vestmannaeyjar. Because of bad weather the days before the eruption many of the islands shipping fleet lay in harbor and could ferry the people of Vestmannaeyjar over to the mainland. Many stayed behind to help with the rescue work and many people from the mainland went over to help with the evacuation and also the try to steer the lava away from the harbor and the center of the town. They tried using water to cool the lava which had never been attempted on this scale before.

The bottle has lava rock from the volcanic eruption in Vestmannaeyjar in 1973. It comes in a Red Icelandic Gift Box.

Bracelet length:

I create most of the bracelets in size 7 inches. This seems to be a size the fits best for many people, and if people or buying from me locally a gift for friends or family that is the size I recommend people buy. But it is no problem to order any of the bracelets in any size. And if you want your bracelet to fit perfectly just measure the length of your wrist and when you order a bracelet put the length in inches, or cm, in the [Add a note to LavaRockReykjavik] box that pops up when you visit the cart.

All the orders come with a free gift bag or box. If the jewelry item has a picture or information in the description that says it comes with a free gift box or bag then it will be shipped with the corresponding method no matter if you select to ship it as a gift or not. If you would prefer one over the other then just add that information to the pop up box that appears in the cart [Add a note to LavaRockReykjavik] and I will do my best to make sure you get the gift bag or box of your choosing.

Inside every item you can select Gift Wrapping, and then I wrap the gift in a Ísland gift box with a nice ribbon. If you have a special occasion or a special seasonal gift (christmas or birthday) you can contact me and we can work together to find a way to pack the gift in a special way to make that gift extra special.
