Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Below is information I have collected over the years from various sources... US made lamps only.....

The 32oz and 52oz bottles came from two different sources
Kimble Glass in Warsaw, Indiana
Owens Illinois in both Perrysburg, Ohio and Toledo, Ohio

The bottles caps were all from
Crown Cork & Seal in Aurora, Illinois

The wax was indeed.....Crayola
Crayola in Easton, Pennsylvania
I was told from time to time other batches were from other manufacturers but the majority supplier was Crayola.

The original Giant and Humungo globes were made in Germany (manufacture unknown)

The 32oz, 52oz, Giant and Humungo bases were made by
Chicago Lighting Supply
I was told they were the sole supplier from the late 70's until 1997 or 1998 when LavaWorld moved the 32oz and 52oz bases to a China supplier. Chicago Lighting made all of the Giant and Humungo bases.

Just thought you would like to know...

Nice!
So I wonder if you could melt Crayola Crayons and use them for the wax? Might be a good source for unique colors.
