Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I'm on the fence about buying another Astro and was trying to find some feedback about the Violet / Turquoise color combination.

I found some videos and pictures of it. but most of the ones that I saw looks pretty dark and the wax seems dim especially at the top of the bottle.

So I'm wondering how does it really look first hand and compared to other colorways like Violet / Orange (that I have). would you recommend buying it?

I got it I would say its better to back light lamps some combo are darling and depends on your lighting where you placing it aswell. It is a nice colourway

I have a small lamp that acts as a back light behind my lamps but it lights up the room too much at night so I don't turn it on most of the time. I prefer a colorway that looks good with and without a back lighting.

Just want to hear from those who has the V/T colorway and what do they think about it.

I love the violet/turquoise, but it’s not great when viewing with the lights off. It’s markedly dim and low contrast at the top. Definitely a daytime or backlight colorway.

Gotcha, its not for me then...

A bit of a shame because the Neo bottle of the violet/turquoise seems much brighter, well at least in the photos...

Was in a similar dilemma a year or so ago, ended up buying one - it’s quite nice actually, I’m happy with mine.




Maybe there are variations between batches, but mine really isn’t that dark, certainly more rich and vibrant than the Blue/ Blue colour way -

The images on the Mathmos website seem to make it look way darker than it is…
