They are not huge - maybe a little larger than a baseball. (It has been years since I held a baseball, so use your own judgement there.)
Every one will vary a little, because they are carved from Hilalayan salt. I have three other salt lamps as well. We have two asthmatics in the house, and they do seem to help purify the air.
This candle uses ONLY tea lights. You can pick them up almost anywhere very inexpensively, so that is not a huge cost.
You'll need a stick-style lighter (like you'd use on large candles or your grill) because you won't be able to get a match in there unless you have some fireplace matches. DO NOT use votive size candles either - the wax will melt down into the base and make a very large mess. Tea lights only please!
They are a funky pink when sitting unused in the room. They don't really expire - my salt lamp in the bedroom is probably three years old and you can't tell I've even used it. When you put in a tea light and light it up, the glow is a beautiful orange that is very eye-pleasing.
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase, and with the product itself. I would gladly give these as gifts (and receive them too!).
If this is your first time to try out a Himalayan light product, this is a great way to do it!
- Very solid and casts a nice orange glow when lit.
- The recess for the tea light is well sized and very deep. The depth means you see the glow, but not the flame. A very good look, but you'll need the long matches to get a tea light lit.
- When I get a new holder, I always burn a candle from start to finish while I'm in the room, so that I can see how hot it gets. After five hours, this holder gets very warm, but not enough so as to make me nervous like some of the glass holders. It gets about as hot as putting your hand on the hood of a car on a sunny day. It's not comfortable to touch, but you can leave your hand there, and easily move it from place to place.
- When the item first arrived, condensation (having come from the truck at around five degrees to the house at seventy-four or so) covered the candle in water. I know it's a salt, but the moisture didn't seem to do any harm to it. I wouldn't run it through the dishwasher, but I think it's hardier than one might expect.
- The holder looks good, and I would have bought it anyway, but it's much more square and a much lighter pink color rather than the orange shown.
- There are partially flat sides where the original block was sized. It'd actually be really nice if you were using this as a bookend, and it's not unattractive, but not what I expected.
- The flat spots make it easy to measure, and it is slightly larger than the description, but not ridiculously so.
- The candle recess is off center. Not a big deal, as it looks just fine with the natural material, but I find it odd.
-Seems like there is some debate over the "air purifying" or "air freshening," or whatever you want to call it, properties of the material. I don't want to jump into all that, so I'm going to simply say that I didn't specifically notice it, and leave it at that.
-If you get this, and you aren't in love with the appearance, you may want to burn a couple candles in it before giving up on it. I could be crazy, but there seems to be the tiniest change in the color after having burned three tea lights completely in it. I think the appearance might have improved slightly. I think it's probably all in my head, but on the off chance it isn't, it might be worth the cost of a couple tea lights.
