Anyone Own A Salt Crystal Lamp?
I was wondering if any fellow Green Wizards own a Salt Crystal lamp?
It is a large chunk of salt, most typically from the Himalayan mountains but I've spotted some from Polish salt mines cashing in on the popularity, which is rough shaped and has a cavity inside for a low wattage light bulb. The heat of the bulb is supposed to warm the salt and cause a release of negative ions into the surrounding air. A lot of hype surrounds them.
I bought my first one because it looked so absolutely gorgeous. Later when I happen to stop by the store that I bought it from, a kind of Good Earth, eco friendly goods store, it was going out of business (the Mall it was in was closing), I bought 3 more as gifts and such.
Not sure of the hyped effects but as a way to cut back on my energy usage, having a 20 watt lamp (inside a beautiful container) is alot better than a 100 watt lamp on. While most are electric, I do have one that lights via a tea candle in its base. Not sure if that works, given the restricted air flow to the flame, since I haven't tried it but I could so see one of these at a Green Wizard Tower in centuries from now, welcoming visiting travelers and journeying green wizards.
The soft warm light from it really puts a medieval glow to a room. Almost like a fireplace without the heavy wood and hauling out the ash, lol.
Anyone else have one?
