Does anyone know roughly how often Mathmos produce white Astro bottles please? I'm down to two, three in one bottles and don't want to ruin those as they are beautiful and flow wonderfully well, better than regular bottles in my opinion. I won't bother waiting for a run if it's likely to be the tenth of never. I also wondered if they didn't make them often because maybe with wax alters colour over time? But cream is fine with me if that's the case. Thanks for your input :)Continue
The Matt silver io will be available before Christmas.Also a new version? First 100 will be available too. What does this mean? A different finish? A different design? I am hoping for a version without the sidebars. Or even a copper or black version. Mathmos usually release new colours with new lamps. So hopefully a new colour bottle too. I am hoping for blue pink as the new astro bottles are awesome. My coppers are waiting. Thank you Mathmos....Continue
Hi all, my first post here! I recently purchased a Grande lamp and needles to say it came all cloudy and jacked up. Instead of going through the hassle of returning it and most likely getting another messed up lamp I decided to goo kit it. The only problem is that it worked great for one day and now the wax just sits at the bottom in its dome like state completely melted. I know for a fact I did the restore properly. I put 55 to 60 ml of surfactant and only distilled water. Bulb is fine, coil…Continue
Hi, is anybody selling any Mathmos Astro bottles within or available to the UK? Anything with clear or pale liquid preferred but not essential, metallics, glitters, or even a glitter bottle for an Astro (if anyone has ever made one) Long shot I know, as many of you are probably in the same position as us and wanting different colour-ways to use. I did just enquire about one on the UK eBay site, seller based in Germany. Right after the seller answered by question about the fluid colour, he put…Continue
Hi, does anyone know if Mathmos ever produced a white base and cap Astro? I remember they produced a marbled white/grey based lamp which I missed out on. I've been searching for either of the above without success. There's currently a black based Astro available on their site, it would be great to see a white based one. Continue

I haven't been active here for a while, but I hope to change that! I'm selling off a bunch of lava-related stuff I've accumulated. Please make offers! I'm not looking to get rich off these items. I want them gone and I'd like a teeny bit of extra cash.Trade offers are also welcome. I'd really love to find an empty Consort globe with intact gold cap, if anyone wants some of my items and has a spare. I'd also love to locate one of the iron-stand Auras Glow, or one of the little Mathmos rocketship…Continue
Hey fellow lava geeks, I bought a vintage 1978 Lava Lite Model 1123 several months ago and the thing has never worked as it should. Part of it is my fault I'm sure because I shook it before finding out that this was a big no no. But in my defense it wasn't working before I shook it but I'm sure it didn't help things. Anyway, the liquid is really cloudy, probably from the shaking, and the goo is a nasty grey green color that looks like it came from a nasty lagoon. It doesn't flow but sits mostly…Continue
Hi, is anybody thinking of selling any of the following items, I'm in the UK. White base and cap Astro, or a white base and cap Astrobaby (with or without bottle)I put this on another thread, but will add it here as well, Cararra Marble Mathmos Astro Editions lamp. Or indeed any special editions Astro Mathmos lamp. I've missed all the special editions so far, having downsized my collection several years ago now, it would be great to just have one special lamp to display alongside our crestworth…Continue
