What kind of sauna stones should be used?
There are several different stone types. We recommend olivine diabase or vulcanite stones. Small stones 5-10cm are good for electrical saun aheaters, and the 10-15cm stones are good for wood-burning sauna stoves.

It really depends on the usage. If sauna is used 1-2 times per week, it would be good to change them once a year. Try picking up two stones and knock them on each other; if they crack, they should definitely be replaced.
