    Hello fellow GooHeads! After a couple years lying mostly dormant save picking up a lamp here and there, my lava love has reignited in full swing and I'm back on the hunt!

    Ferrofluid + Motion Lamp = EPIC (made in the USA!)

    Started by k-nano in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by k-nano 4 hours ago. 6 Replies

    I have made new recipe for motion lamps that adds a 21st century twist to them AND brings back the nostalgic 'flow' that seems to be missed by many connoisseurs of the lava lamp. I have launched the project via kickstarter to make this happen. Right now I have to buy the bottle from China, but the actual formulation and installation will be done here in the USA and I NEVER plan to give that to China. In fact, I hope to get event he bottles made in the USA one day!Please check out my kickstarter…Continue

    I got another original Lavalite lamp at a garage sale. The guy told me the wax was kinda 'dead' and he was right. So with nothing to lose, I poured in some salt water. And Boy Howdy, if you want 'flow'? Salt sure does it.However... it -slightly- clouds the water. Not a lot, but it's noticeable from a distance. I used pickling salt and let it sit first, but it's still not crystal clear. I've experimented since with dilution, but it seems like the 'salinity' necessary to get the flow action makes…Continue

    Can someone tell me who made this lamp?

    Started by Chris in Collecting. Last reply by Heidi D yesterday. 2 Replies

    Looking for some input on what company could have possibly made this lamp and if it's worth keeping or not. The only thing I really know about it is that it was bought in the 90s. It doesn't flow all that great, and the lava is usually translucent purple as soon as it starts flowing. It's also kind of filmy on the inside of the glass. It does flow though, and I didn't pay a dime for it. I'm just wondering if it's worth keeping or if I should try giving it away and getting my newly acquired…Continue
