This is a group for those who have an interest in the so-called Hunter lava lamps named after their founder, Mr John Edward Hunter who attempted a patent on his Sata-Lite model in c. 1970. Later version was called the Sparkle-Lite using glittery strands in the liquid. They came in various designs but more or less one size and with only one bottle type but numerous colour combos in both wax and sparkly strands to glitter.
I'm not really a pirate but I play one at the local Renaissance Faire :)

Los Angeles California USA
My First Lava Lamp was:
I've always wanted one of the rocket lava lamps and managed to find one on Craigslist. WhooHOO! Now I have eight lamps (a couple of centuries and a couple of normal-sized lamps, plus a glitter tube and a small glitter). My sister had one when I was younger and I was always fascinated by it.
Boy with the major earthquake we just had in Los Angeles, I am REALLY lucky I didn't lose any lamps - several fell - and I think I'm going to try to take a picture of the severe dent in my wood floor caused by the top of one of my regular-sized globes as it toppled over and HIT THE FLOOR. Urgh. Would have been a huge mess had the glass broken. I think it's a miracle as it fell from six feet above the floor onto it's head. =8O
