This Himalayan salt lamp has a net weight between 1.0 and
2.0 kg (with an average height of 6" and base width of 4"). As each lamp is unique, the actual weight varies slightly from lamp to lamp.
Our Himalayan salt lamps are beautifully hand-shaped from
real salt crystals formed millions of years ago when the Earth was pristine. As a result, they are completely free from modern-day pollutants such as pesticides,
DDT or PCBs.
Salt lamps come from deep inside Himalayan salt caves, where
huge seams of trace-mineral-rich salt are harvested and transformed into edible
salt, salt lamps, salt tea lights and other items. The salt is considered
"better than organic" because they are wildcrafted from inside a
mountain, completely free of modern-day chemicals.
YES, these lamps are edible! You can literally scrape off the
salt from the lamp and use it on your food. These lamps are not treated or
processed in any way other than being physically shaped into a lamp. There is
nothing added to these large shapes of Himalayan salt other than the wooden
lamp base. If you LICK your salt lamp, it will taste like salt.
This salt contains 82+ trace elements, including magnesium,
zinc, selenium and more. It is a "full-spectrum" sea salt that's slightly
pinkish in color. The taste is widely considered to have more depth and
richness compared to processed white table salt.
Every salt lamp is
Himalayan salt is a collection of crystals. The crystal
shape reminds many people of quartz crystals or geodes. There is a geometry in
the crystals that is widely recognized to be "sacred" in the healing
arts. Salt lamps are crystals you can eat!
When lit from the inside, Himalayan salt lamps project an
amazing pattern of light and color. They also have a slight ionizing effect
that projects negative ions when the light bulb
is turned on. Historically, allergy sufferers have commonly visited salt caves
to help improve their breathing.
We cannot guarantee exactly what each salt lamp will look
like, as each one is unique in texture and composition. The picture you see
here is taken from the same salt lamps we are offering, so your lamp will look
similar to this. All Himalayan salt lamps will have visible
"fractures" which are lines between different concentrations of
mineral elements inside the lamp. They may also contain small
"specks" of minerals, usually red or pink in color. The texture of
the salt lamp is much like a collection of tiny crystals, which is exactly what
salt really is.
FREE dimmer switch
Most Himalayan salt lamps sold in North America come with a
cheap on/off light switch. Our lamps come with a FREE high-quality dimmer
switch and cord, allowing you to "turn the lights down low" to set
the mood for meditation, romance, or whatever you want.
The warm glow produced by these lamps is incredibly
beautiful, even sensuous. The natural texture of the lamp provides a
kaleidescope of fascinating textures and light refractions that are mesmerizing
NOTE: A light
bulb is NOT included with the lamp, as the bulbs are fragile and would break
during shipping. It uses a standard light bulb size that you can find at any
Home Depot, Lowe's, Wal-Mart or other home living store. The "B10"
bulb screw base is what you're looking to get. They're sometimes called
"miniature lamp" bulbs. These are very inexpensive and easy to find. We recommend a 45-watt bulb or smaller.
A smart preparedness
Himalayan salt lamps are prized as valuable preparedness
items because human beings cannot live without salt. Although modern-day food
is pre-salted, in a collapse or survival scenario, salt suddenly becomes very
difficult to get (and goes way UP in value).
In a survival scenario, you'll need salt for storing foods,
pickling vegetables, curing meats, cooking soups, and to help eliminate
nutritional deficiencies. Because Himalayan salt contains 82+ trace elements,
it provides the body with nutritional raw materials that regular white salt
If you wish to chip off some salt from a salt lamp, here's a
tip: Wrap the salt lamp in a towel, then (carefully) hammer away at the towel. This will
produce salt grains and small pieces that can be used in cooking. It is a good idea to wear eye protection when hammering, by the way.
Infinite shelf life
These salt lamps have already been "on the shelf"
so to speak for millions of years. As long as you keep them dry, they have a shelf life far beyond a human lifespan. Remember: They have been buried under billions of tons of
rock and dirt for millions of years. They will do just fine sitting on your
shelf. This makes them a smart way to store a valuable survival item that also doubles as a beautiful decoration piece for your home or office!

effectively a huge discount, as salt lamps are heavy and expensive to
ship. Shipping to Hawaii and Alaska is charged at the actual rate
provided to us by the carriers. We do not recommend purchasing salt
lamps for shipment outside the United States, as shipping costs can
often exceed the entire purchase price of the lamp.
