Amazon.com

One of the most beloved and recognizable icons from the 1960s and 1970s. Lava Lite resurrects the groovy gizmo, bringing it back to the forefront of trendy home decor. The iconic lamp's shape stays true to the original's geometric design, while it bubbles its hypnotizing splendor behind the glass for a whole new generation. A brushed-steel base anchors the unit with a sturdy foundation, while a matching tip infuses it with a cool sense of symmetry and completion.

Powered with a standard electrical cord and lit with a 25-watt incandescent bulb, the lamp's psychedelic — yet strikingly soothing — glow gently illuminates any study, den, office, or bedroom. A funky, radical gift for a retro-loving family member or friend, pair it with a disco ball and some hip records to drum up a downright dynamite party. The lamp measures approximately 4 inches in diameter by 14.5 inches high and is backed by a 90-day limited warranty.

History of Lava Lite

The first motion lamp was designed in 1963 by an English engineer, Edward Craven Walker, who marketed it under the name Astro Lamp. In 1965, two American entrepreneurs saw the Astro lamp displayed at a trade show in Brussels, bought the rights to market the lamp worldwide and formed the Lava Corporation in Chicago. The Astro Lamp was renamed the Lava Lamp and an American icon was born.

The original manufacturer of Lava Lamps, Lava Light delights in satisfying the cravings of lava-lamp aficionados with a continual offering of new lamps — everything from glittered and patterned varieties to cool and quirky color schemes, color-phasing vortex styles, and more. Lava Lite's selection of replacement bulbs, electrical cords, globes, and beaded globe wraps help keep each light operating in style and at peak capacity.

The lava lite looks great and it works very well.

The first one gummed up and stopped working after 1 week, the second one never worked properly.

Great as a night light and soothing to fall asleep watching.

Color Name: Yellow/Blue/Silver
This is my first real lava lamp, and I must say that it has captured my attention and my imagination. Sure, it takes about an hour to warm up to a unique display--as others have mentioned; however, I find THAT aspect very comforting in today's fast-paced, too immediate, too loud, too impatient, too now-oriented society. The Lava lamp moves with its own motion and mood. Its purpose is to calm and to relax a person; it is the perfect companion for some soft music and NO TV.

I love the colors of this product. They are very soothing. When the lava really starts moving, mingling, the lamp has a beautiful, unearthly quality about it. I tend to watch each blob with interest and forget the day's troubles.

Slow down and enjoy the blobs...

This is great lamp... Received mine from "Lamps Plus" via Amazon.com and the package came in perfect condition with plenty of cushion to get it to my home safely... This one has nice contrasting colors that give off a nice glow to the room without really adding much light... Great, fun light!!!

Color Name: Vortex Glitter Verified Purchase
I recieved my Lava Color Phasing Vortex Lamp today & absolutely love it. I've owned Lava's battery-operated version for 3 years (and love it too). The new one is 4.5 inches taller than the battery-operated version, plugs in to house current (with the included adapter), and the motor runs constantly (to make the glitter swirl). The battery-operated version's motor cycles off & on (probably to extend the batterie's life). The unit has 6 LEDs (2 red, 2 blue, and 2 green). In the technical details, it states the unit "Generates soft, relaxing aquarium sound". My unit makes only a faint sound you would only notice in a silent room and within 6 ft. of it. Any other sound in the room would be louder than it (& mask the sound). I consider the unit's lack of noise a plus. The price has dropped twice since it was introduced. It's currently selling for only 37.5% of it's original price making it a steal. I checked wattage using my Kill a Watt Electricity Useage Monitor. It's so low, the meter can't detect (0 watts) the current used. The unit is always the same temperature as the room its in. There is nothing to make the unit run hot like older Lava Lamps using an incandescent (15 to 40 watt) bulb. Buy it - - you won't regret it.

Color Name: Clear / Black Verified Purchase
Alright, so when I got it out of the cardboard tube, I was a little dismayed to find that the wax had combined with the clear liquid in the globe to make it cloudy. The clouds were pretty bad, but the effect of the lava lamp was still the same, I just wasn't very happy with the fact that it was dysfunctional. All I had to do was pop the little bottle cap off while it was completely settled down, pour out whatever the liquid was, and fill it with COLD water (if you melt the wax while doing this, you will have exactly the same problem. I then added about five drops of liquid detergent to the water, and the lamp lavas perfectly and is clear (or at least as clear as it can get with the slightly foggy glass that it comes in, but that can't be helped.)

Oh, and you can definitely add food coloring to the water if you please, but don't go overboard, like, 3 drops should be more than enough.

Best of luck.

Color Name: Classic Pink/Purple
After purchasing two "old" lava lamps from the 1990s, I saw that my local hardware store had these on sale for $10. I knew that LavaWorld outsourced their entire lamp production to China in the early 2000s and quality had suffered since, but I thought I might get lucky and get a good one. No such luck. I took the lamp out of the box, put the globe on top of the vase and turned it on. Immediately, I could see some sort of flaky stuff in the liquid. No idea what that was. I left it on for about two hours and the lava just sat there in a huge blob at the bottom of the globe. Two more hours passed - same thing. The lava never "took off" and appeared to be partially separated from the heating coil. I noticed that these lamps run on a small 25W bulb and my lamps from the 90s run on 40W bulbs. D

I have two lava lamps from the 1990s (Lava Lite) and they flow beautifully. It's really obvious from the moment you take these news ones out that quality has suffered. I would under no circumstances buy a new lamp from LavaWorld. If you're really interested in owning a beautiful, functioning lamp, do some research online and learn about which ones are good quality. My advice: get one from the 90s or earlier. Don't believe me? Read the reviews of LavaWorld lamps on here and you'll find all you need.

This lamp is being returned tomorrow.

Long live the lava (just not these!).

Color Name: Yellow/Blue/Silver
Mine did nothing when I first got it. The blue blob just sat at the bottom of the bottle. I shook it once and turned the light off for an hour. After an hour - I switched it back on again and was rewarded with the COOLEST show of liquid motion ever! At first the wax stretched towards the top of the glass and after two hours...the neat little balls started forming.

I am hooked on this little relaxation device now. I could stare at those globules stretching, twisting, balling-up and colliding with each other ALL DAY now! Its really more soothing than a fish tank, and works PERFECT with relaxing music. It is a great conversation piece and therapeutic...all wrapped up in one cool, retro looking lamp!

I suggest hooking a timer to it and scheduling it to work while you sleep. The lamp seems to work much better when it cycles between OFF/ON periodically. The lamp MUST cool down every 6-8 hours...or else you'll see nothing but a lazy, round blob sitting at the bottom of the glass. Don't buy it for the illumination...get it because it definitely will UNSTRESS YOU.
