Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Left: Orange globe of my squiggle aristocrat. Right: The century I go this weekend. It's a little cloudy, but I'm confused as to what color it is.

Thank you, Jonas, for your comment.  The thought had occurred to me that this might be that rare color scheme, but I had my doubts and wanted to check with someone with more knowledge of this.  It seems to be mismatched with a 1970s Century base (brown cord, starlight pinholes occur in with a gap between every second row of holes).  However, it flows very nicely, is fun to watch, and has cleared up a bit as you can see in the attached pictures (what more is there to want from a lava lamp, right?).  The only problem I see now is that as it runs, it accumulates tiny bubbles of the wax in the globe.  These settle out and return to the bulk wax when I turn the lamp off, but I worry that if I let it run too long in one sitting that the fragmenting will get worse.  Nonetheless, if I decide to part with it, I'll remember your interest!

I suspect you have the rare "Champagne Mist," which had hazy liquid intentionally. If it flows, I'd keep it as-is and try to love it! If you end up hating it, just mail it to me...
