Rough Himalayan Salt Lamps
Rough Himalayan salt lamps - gorgeous glowing gifts, typically thought to be useful for crystal healing.
Most of these lamps and our other salt carvings come from the salt mine at Khewra, the second largest salt mine in the world. It sits in the foothills of the Himalayas, where salt was deposited 250 million years ago.
Every lamp comes with all the fittings and a bulb and are fully UK CE tested and electrically tested.
These lamps use a standard three pin UK plug, and are intended for 230V UK power. They come disassembled, but only take about two minutes to pop together. It's just slightly safer for postage! I personally test the electronics on each lamp I send out.
We recommend against keeping salt lamps in any humid places. Salt naturally absorbs water from the surrounding environment. Essentially, the lamps can 'sweat', which can cause damage to tables or any surfaces they are kept on. Because of this, we recommend keeping them on a small plate, or wooden stand. A piece of slate would work nicely, too.
Turning salt lamps on for any length of time should stop the sweating problem - so just make sure to turn your lamp on for an hour or two.
Because of the weight of these lamps, each one is sent by courier. There are companies who sell similar lamps at much lower prices that we simply cannot compete with. Simply put, we do not sacrifice safety to offer lower prices. We monitor all relevant UK guidelines and restrictions on electrical safety and every lamp we sell complies.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
