Info: USB-Powered Lamp; Available in 3 Kinds
The Salt Crystal for these Lamps is ethically harvested from the geological range of the Himalayan Mountains, where salt deposits were formed millions of years ago. Each lamp is handcrafted with care, resulting in its unique and beautiful form. Himalayan Salt naturally produces negative ions when it is sufficiently warmed, which can help clean and purify the air. (Ions are small electrically charged particles contained in the air we breathe; other natural ion producers are trees and waterfalls.) These particular types use efficient LED bulbs which are to be powered by a computer or similar device with a USB port, using the included USB cord.
Three types of USB-powered lamps are available (not all are in stock at all times, however):
* Two with the regular pink or slightly orangeish coloured Himalayan crystal salt, as shown on the left below:
- one distributed by the T-Zone company illuminated by a steady white light like the one pictured on the left of both photos, which makes the lamp glow orange; and,
- a slightly larger one (ranging between 700 grams and 1.5 kg in weight, and standing about half an inch higher than the T-Zone ones) distributed by Sundhed, whose LED light continually alternates between white, yellow, green, blue, violet and red colours every few seconds, in a very fluid, soothing way, causing most of the lamp to take on those hues, as well.
* One from T-Zone featuring nearly pure white crystal salt, with an alternating LED light which glows from purple to blue to green, fading from one colour and transitioning to the next every five seconds or so (shown right).
The two T-Zone lamps are under 4 inches in diameter and stand about 5 inches high, while the alternating Sundhed lamp is up to 4.5 inches in diameter and up to about 5.5 inches high.
Salt lamps can be cleaned by dusting with a soft brush.
In order to avoid scratches or salt deposits during humid conditions, do not place your Salt Lamp directly on valuable furniture. You should instead place it on a waterproof base. Do not use outdoors or sprinkle with water.
