    Mathmos Lunar lava lamp

    Started by Dave Dryden in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone 16 hours ago. 0 Replies

    Greetings all from the land down under. This is my first time on the site and i'm on a mission. I have just purchased a beautiful Lunar lamp but alas the bulb housing has at some time been wet and it has corroded to the point of no return (the rest of the lamp is perfect). I contacted Mathmos and they said that they don't have any parts for it and suggested I join this group in an attempt to find one. Can anyone out there please help me? Cheers... Dave.Continue

    Late 90's #02 bottle problem - doming after about 2.5 hours.

    Started by kero48 in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Peter Panussi 18 hours ago. 4 Replies

    I picked up a late 90's #02 bottle with a black base, cap was missing.The colors are really nice and fluid is crystal clear. Yellow fluid, red lava. The fluid looks more like a dark yellow than a bright yellow.The problem is the lamp works beautifully for about 2-1/2 hours at which time give or take the lava just creates a dom at the bottom of the bottle. Until that time it works exactly as you would expect.Now keep in mind my place this past weekend has been hovering around the high 70's…Continue

    What's wrong with this picture?  There seems to be far more globes than bases and caps.  WTH??I think a couple of boxes got left behind in the last move ---  in 2006!!  Damnit all anyhow!Continue

    Hi everyone, I found this site trying to find other people that love lava lamps as much as I do (which is hard) I had lava lamps when I was younger (90's style) and just got into them again when I found an old midnight series on fb market place for $10 :) It all went down hill from there!After trying to obtain new lamps I found myself disappointed in the quality of the "china" lamps, before I would purchase I would open the boxes up (not the older tube style boxes) and make sure the lamp was…Continue

    So, the wife and I took a trip out on the Island today to get a change of scenery and happened to pass a Kmart we didn't know was there as most on the Island were closed long ago.I walk in and right near the registers is what is called a FLASH SALE "Get em while they last"I already see the usual new suspects but I noticed on the bottom shelf the tube packages which always tell me older than newer. Then I look closer and see tubes that are taller than the 52oz tubes and get all excited.Low and…Continue

    Why do new lava lamps suck?

    Started by Jonathan Hoffman in Problems & Questions. Last reply by kero48 on Saturday. 3 Replies

    I got the lamp in the video on ebay years ago, and it is AWESOME.  It moves slowly and smoothly and the lava is 100% opaque (can't see through it)... the definition of therapeutic to watch!https://youtu.be/IMnMa8lPM0EWhen I watch it, I feel almost like I was given some anti-anxiety pill!Then, I've had several that I purchased new at retail stores, and they are awful!  They move fast and stringy and the blobs are translucent so you see air bubbles in…Continue

    Well I must say that this site is quite a surprise to me. Who would have known there was a community of people obsessed by the ooze.

    Well I hope to meet some of you guys and what not.
