Overview

Here's what we know about Lava chalk. The stuff is made from lava rocks that have been pulverized into a fine powder. The idea behind using lava rock goes a little something like this:

Lava rocks are created from lava that flows at crazy high temperatures
These temperatures create viscosity
Viscosity equals friction
Friction is what keeps chalk on your tip (and as a result, reduces miscues)

We've tested it out here at PoolDawg and it does seem to stick better than other chalks. As for the color, it's a reddish brown/rust color due to the iron in the lava rock which oxidizes when it hits the air. Don't forget that we also carry Lava Chalk in traditional blue!

      Great chalk

    • I love this chalk. Hold's really well to the pool cue tip. Chalk on the start of a game never have to chalk the rest of the game. I like it more over all others chalks.

    • This is some great chalk compared to what I have used. The bar I shot for has a tan cloth on the table and they don't let anyone use blue chalk. it sticks to the tip much better then the tan master they have and it does not leave noticeable marks on the table. some times you can see the difference in color but it wipes right off. i have definitely had less miss cues sense i started using it.

      Lava chalk.

    • By - See All My Reviews

    • I have gold felt on my table, and I was using cheap Silver Cup[tan] chalk. This would not stay on my Moori, hard, tip. Blue diamond chalk was recommended, so I purchased 2 cubes for about$10, and it worked great---but it only came in blue, and it stained my gold felt! I looked all over for tan/brown/copper- colored better chalk & could not find any. This Lava chalk is SUPER! It adheres to my hard cue tips well[not as well as the Blue Diamond],and the color blends well with the gold. Thanks' PoolDawg!

      Hot Chalk, Cool Price

    • This is fantastic chalk. Not too gritty and adheres to your cue tip well and leaves little to no chalk on the cloth, cue ball or yourself. The orange color of the chalk is also unique and is a great conversation starter when you tell people that it came from an actual volcano. It comes 2 to a box and I gave the other piece to a friend of mine and he said his game is improving after using this chalk. Definitely a re-purchase :)

      Amazing

    • I've been using Master chalk for years. 50.
      I can go two, maybe three shots before a miscue is imminent, but I try to chalk on each shot with Master.

      I was looking at this odd chalk, so I asked Alicia ( hint that is her name), who told me she personally used it and liked it a lot. I have two full boxes of Master, but thought what the heck?

      Just for grins and giggles, I lightly sanded my Kamui soft to get rid of the blue, chalked up, and shot two racks of straight pool. I missed a few, as I was paying attention to the chalk's performance instead of the shots, trying to force a miscue, so I took maybe 40 shots without chalking up again.
      On the last shot, to set the break shot, I used quite a bit of draw.
      The cue ball went exactly where I meant it to be.
      I am about to break again, low right hand to crash the rack, a clean break shot with great action. And we are still shooting.

      I gave it five stars because there weren't 6.

      BUY SOME!!!

      Great chalk

    • I bought this chalk, when I was buying a few other things. I have used masters for as long as I can remember, and The lava chalk is very similar. great grab. It is gritty but it coats very easily and stays on well. Lasts long. Its far above Silver Cup, and NTC comparing highly to Masters. worth a try for only a couple dollars more than masters. And for those with a pool table at home, you may enjoy this a lot because it brushes off very easily and doesnt stain any color felt. Too bad they don't sell boxes in dozen sizes. 5 Star chalk.
