The salt in these lamps come from the foothills of the Himalayas; the block of salt is carved, then shaped into a pyramid and then hollowed out inside to contain a bulb. These look beautiful when lit, they aren’t strong enough to be a light source by themselves but they do create a lovely atmosphere. The base on which these stand on are made from genuine neem wood and are screwed into the base of the salt block, there’s a small gap to allow a cable through at the bottom.
A theory behind salt lamps suggests that as the lamp heats it, it gives off negative ions into the air, which has health benefits.
This lamp is very easy to clean, just wipe the outside surface with a damp sponge and dry with a paper towel because each crystal is natural, dimensions and weight vary.
