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.
