Info: Various Sizes and Colours
Most Himalayan Salt Lamps use small incandescent bulbs which have the dual properties of generating both the light for the lamp itself and the low level heat required to induce the salt to release its helpful negative ions.
Several salt lamp bulb types are available, each have the screw-in brass-coloured fittings for the E12 Socket (like the old Christmas tree bulbs: the metal fitting is about 3/8th of an inch in diameter and about 1/4 inch deep, not including the tip).
Clear bulbs are generally the most suitable type for the traditional pink Himalayan Salt Lamps. We currently carry them in two wattages -- 15W and 25W -- which come in packages of four. The bulbs themselves are about 1-1/2 inches long past the metal fitting.
Two of these bulbs are coloured rather than clear, and are mainly intended for use with pure white salt lamps, to make them glow blue or green. These bulbs are about 3/4" in diameter, and 2-1/4" long, past the fitting.
To reduce the chance of being burned or the bulb shattering, turn off the power and allow the lamp to cool before removing from socket. Handle bulbs with care and do not scratch with metal or a sharp object.
