"Under the Volcano - Homeopathic Remedies from Inside the Earth" (SCRIBD ARTICLE).
It describes a group of Volcanic remedies which all have a very similar healing metaphor (theme) ...
* New life arising from devastation *
The Volcano destroys obstacles in its path but its ash is fertile and supports new life. Disconnection from the past arises and this causes a sense of unreality or nostalgia, but there is hope!
The volcanic remedies also feature supression - and a subsequent release of pent up feelings when they can no longer control them ... i.e. Anger.
They seem to be on a spectrum of hardness and detachment, depending for example, on how much flourine they contain and their physical qualities, i.e. Hecla is ash so it is softer than Arizona Basalt.

There is suppression and unexpressed anger in Staphy. Ther's also indignation and a sense of injustice. Staphy has a sexual element. Staphy does have bone pain, but the Volcanic Rx seem deeper.
Ever felt dwarfed and insignificant in a hall of Marble? Marble is cold and has a sense of isolation so don't get marble worktops. Granite is dictatorial and feels under attack so don't get Granite either :)
Limestone is nostalgic! Imagine your form being eroded by water day in and day out ;)
