Info: Fire Bowl Lamp
Ideal in your home or workplace, Himalayan Rock Crystal Lamps function as natural ionizers to help reduce the amount of positive ions which build up in your environment from electronics, thereby providing cleaner air and a healthier atmosphere. (Because salt attracts moisture in the air, and powerful negative ions which carry oxygen particles are released when the salt is heated up, and they help purify the air of free radical particles, which can be of great benefit to those with asthma or upper respiratory problems.) The soft, warm glow of the lamp can also induce feelings of tranquility and peacefulness, and may even help alleviate feelings of depression.
Please note: The relatively small 'Fire Bowl' shaped sculpted lamp (which is about 6 inches in diameter and about 5 inches high), and a nearly nine-inch tall (and over 6 pounds in weight) "Mini" one shaped somewhat like the one in the other photo are the two types available here at the price shown for shipping, but they cost less if purchased on-site in our Winnipeg store.
The boxes for T-Zone Small Fire Bowl Lamp (852536000067) and the Mini Mountain Gold Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp (896401000240) both contain: a salt lamp, light bulb, base and mechanism.
There are also a number of other Himalayan salt crystal lamps available at Aviva for purchase in-store or by special order, including several boxed ones about twice that size which might be available to ship (although extra shipping charges would likely apply): in a "Natural Shape" (like the larger one shown in the alternate photo, but with a a wooden base) or a "Snow White" Salt Lamp (shown above), which can also be used with different coloured bulbs to illuminate in other colours); or a Pyramid shape (shown below). There may also be some heavy "Tea Light" / Candle Holder types such as the one shown here at right, which are about 4 inches tall, 4 inches across, and 5 inches wide, with a 1-1/2 inch diameter opening in it to burn a candle in (instead of an electric bulb). Please contact store for details.
There may even be some variously shaped, much heavier ones that can be about two feet tall. A wide range of these amazing natural Himalayan salt lamps can be viewed in our retail store in Winnipeg, weighing from about 4 kg all the way up to 40! For more details, please contact our store, and we will be happy to assist you.
Each lamp is mounted on a wooden base and comes with an electrical cord and bulb. Standard lamps available for shipping online are approximately 10 lbs. in size (anywhere from 9-12 lbs). Many of our larger lamps are very heavy and impractical for shipping. However, if you are interested in having a lamp shipped by special order, please contact us for additional information.
Replacement clear bulbs are also available in-store, as shown here. (Ask for store code 12439).
In today's society, we are bombarded with electromagnetic frequencies from televisions, microwaves and computer monitors -- producers of electromagnetic fields which create excessive amounts of positive ions that can be neutralized by the negative ions emanating from salt lamps. As well, the soothing colours of the lamps can have a positive effect on the body and mind.
Thanks to scientific research, it is well-established that salt crystal lamps have biophysical characteristics with a positive effect on our well-being.

- Improves overall wellness
- Assists with natural healing process
Heated salt crystal lamps can be referred to as natural ion generators. Depending upon size and surface area of the salt crystal used for the lamp, the ambient air surrounding it is measurably cleaned by the transformation cycle of hydrogen and oxygen, as well as sodium and chloride ions.
Neutralizes Excess Positive Ions
The crystal lamp binds the negative ions with excess positive ions. When the lamp becomes warm, it absorbs moisture and the crystal will be damp on the surface. This builds up the ion field. The positively charged atmosphere of a room can be neutralized using this kind of lamp.
Not suitable for humid areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms.
Care for Lamp
Salt Crystal Lamps should not be used in rooms with excessive humidity. If exposed to dampness, leave the lamp lit for several hours to emit the surface humidity, and then remove any powdery material with a dry cloth. Regularly wipe the dust off the lamp using a slightly damp cloth. Always unplug the lamp before changing the light bulb to prevent electric shocks.
As salt tends to attract moisture these lamps should not be washed or used in humid situations or outdoors. If they do show signs of dampness, turn on the lamp or light the candle to dry them out. Ensure first that any electrical parts are dry before using the lamp.
Salt lamps can be cleaned by dusting with a soft brush. The bulb may be changed by withdrawing the light fitting from the base. Tea-light Holders can be replaced from the top of the salt crystal Tea-light Holders.
In order to avoid scratches or salt deposits during humid conditions, do not place directly on valuable furniture -- place it on a waterproof base such as a plate. Crystals get hot when in use: do not touch. Keep away from water and excess humidity; it should not be used in rooms with excessive humidity, or outdoors. If it is exposed to dampness, leave the lamp lit for several hours so it can shed the surface humidity, and then remove any powdery material with a dry cloth. If the lamp does show signs of dampness after not using it for a while, turn it on to dry it out. (Ensure first that any electrical parts are dry before using.)
