Product Description

Ah, the lava lamp. 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 its wax/ liquid color scheme bubbles its hypnotizing splendor behind the glass for a whole new generation. Furthermore, a steel base anchors the unit with a sturdy foundation, while a matching cap infuses it with a cool sense of symmetry and completion. Powered with a standard electrical cord with inline switch and lit with a 40-watt incandescent bulb, the lamp's soothing glow gently illuminates any study, den, office, or bedroom. Better yet, pair it with a disco ball and some hip records to drum up a downright dynamite party. A funky, radical gift for a family member or friend. Carries a 90-day limited warranty. The original manufacturer of Lava Lamps, Lava Lite 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, help keep each light operating in style and at peak capacity. When you first start this Lava Lamp, give it 4-6 hours to run in a lava-y fashion. The Lava Lamp will start by forming “towery” wax pillars. This is normal and eventually it will start to flow, with blobs colliding and oozing around the glass globe.

Alot of folks have had bad luck with their LL's, so here are your LL basics:

1 If you receive a lamp with the liquid so cloudy that you cant see the lava, send it back for replacement.
these require special handling in shipment and must not be shaken or rattled. It should be shipped in an upright
possition.
2 After removing your LL from its box, you will see a round coil, possibly imbedded in some solid lava.
Try to get that coil down to the bottom near the bulb. If the coil will not lay on the bottom because of the wax,
just place the lamp in the base and turn the lamp on. It may take several hours for the wax to
melt enough to free the coil so it can rest on the bottom but do not leave the lamp on for more than 6 hours even
if the coil is not yet on the bottom.
Wait until the lamp is room temp and try again, NEVER leave the lamp on more than 6 hours.
3 Eventually, the wax will melt and the coil will settle on the bottom.
4 Never shake or even move the lamp while it's hot and the lava is flowing.
5 Check the bulb placement. The light bulb MUST be exactly dead center. If not, you can move it while it is cool.
6 Do not place your LL in a cold room (50 or less) because the wax will solidify too fast and eventually, it will
break-up into tiny globs.
7 One more time, most important (I dont care what someone else said), DO NOT leave your LL on for more then 6 HOURS.
If you do, the lava will break up into tiny beads and will never form a solid mass again. It will look like a mess
and it wont even move.
8 Buy your LL from someone you can trust and has a good return policy (like Amazon) because alot of LLs are received
damaged in shipping.

Reading the reviews here, I was really wary of buying this item at all... It seems that the lamps with the "clear" fluid have issues with being very cloudy. So perhaps steer clear of those. I went with the version that has yellow lava and purple fluid. At first I thought that this combination of colors was going to look kind of tacky and not as classic as the red lava/clear fluid versions. I went for it anyway. I love the colors. The lava at the bottom looks like molten gold and as it rises, it looks reddish at the top. It pretty much looks like the cartoon image they show on the product page. The fluid is a pale purple and very clear. When it arrived, there were little flakes of "lava" (the wax) all throughout the fluid and I was a little worried about whether the flakes would disappear with use or if they would always "dirty" the fluid. Well, after running the lamp for about 4 hours, all the flakes of wax melted into the main blobs and the fluid is totally clear. It looks great and I'm really happy I got this larger size. So nice and way more affordable than the tiny ones I saw locally for twice the price.

I haven't had a lava lamp since I was little and I forgot how fun and hypnotic they are to watch! Recommended!

I have to say that Amazon shipped the lava lamp package in a box with no packing material - thank goodness it didn't break. Not impressed with that part, but of course that's no reflection on the product. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the longevity of the lava lamp but it's off to a great start.

Color: Yellow/Purple/Silver Verified Purchase
Introduction: This company claims to make the "original" lava lamps because they invented the "Lava" name, but they licensed the actual product from the British company Crestworth, which started the production of this kind of lamps in the early 1960s and changed its name to Mathmos in the 1990s. A friend of mine has a truly "original" Mathmos lamp from the 1990s, which has pretty uniformly-colored water and wax from the bottom to the top when it is on. I have never seen a lamp of this quality from Lava Lite, but the Lava Lites are also much cheaper than corresponding products from Mathmos (which are not officially sold in the U.S.).

I got my first Lava Lite 16.3" lamp about 1 1/2 years ago. When it was on, the water and the wax showed the color of the (white) light bulb at the bottom and became more colorful towards the top, but the water was clear and wax bubbles were going up and down as they should. I liked it. Unfortunately this lamp was destroyed by a cleaning lady a few weeks ago.

My new lamp from Amazon is exactly the same model, but when it arrived two weeks ago, the water was very cloudy, and this has not changed so far. When the lamp is on and I look at it from a close distance, I can see the wax bubbles, but while the water is more cloudy than in the old lamp, the wax seems to be more transparent - the desired effect of colorful wax bubbles moving in clear purple-colored water does not occur at all; from a distance it looks like an illuminated bottle of thin pomegranate juice. I am too lazy to send this $20 item back to Amazon, and some people say the cloudiness may disappear in a few weeks, thus I will keep this lamp and see what happens, but I am disappointed.
