I went into a Strawberry AlarmClock store today and as I was heading into the store I noticed a clear/black Midnight sitting there flowing. It looked clear/black and I thought it was a China globe. I got curious and asked the guy if he would take a look at the bottle cap and see if it said Lava Lite or of it had a sticker on it.
He said "It says Lava Lite." I asked how much he wanted for it because I wanted to buy it. He told me their regular price was $24.99. I was STILL gonna buy it for that price no problem because I have been looking for a clear/black Lava Lite globe for the longest. Then he drops the price down to $20 since it has been there for awhile. Even better.
We let it sit for a little bit to let the lava settle while he gets a box ready. Not original, but that's ok.
When I get it home, I turn it on and as it is flowing, I notice that the wax is not as dark as it was in the store. Something with the light I guess. The wax looks like dark chocolate in the globe. No the pigment has not bled into the liquid. The wax is just not really black.
Is this an actual clear/chocolate??
I am curious because I have wanted one of those too since they are kind of .....accidental?
Any extra information would help a lot.
I know I have collected lava lamps for over 8 years now, but I still don't know everything. heeheh. I just need more info.
I will post pics when I get my digital camera back.
P.S. I should mention that it might NOT be a genuine Midnight. The base was made in China. But by the flow of the globe I know at least the globe is a pre-china.
