Bad Luck Stories from Taking Pieces of Lava

Jump to last reply

I know it's against the law, but apparently people try to take home souvenirs of lava or black sand. A program I watched on the Travel Channel yesterday had one fellow who says he's had sand and lava mailed back to him by someone who "copped" some when on vacation and took it home.

Anyone else have tales of bad luck? Or is this a good way to keep us all in check and less likely to walk away with lava in our pockets?
