Natural C02 Diffuser

So i was trying to think of intresting ways to make a more hidden C02 diffuser. I thought well i have some lava rock and thats pretty porous, so i thought what if i drill a hole in the underside of the lava rock and stick a airstone in there that would help diffuse it and look cool at the same time right. And i suppose if you really wanted to get crazy you could put a plant like anubis on the lava rock too.
Im interested in input on this, has any one ever done this, because its just an idea that i was thinking of doing.

Assuming you own an external filter, why not buy an inline reactor?

you'll end up with big bubbles that'll just rise to the top fairly quickly, i dont see it being an effective method of diffusion.
