"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…"

"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."

"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…"

Mathmos Astro Violet / Turquoise recommended?

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?See More

ImMelting replied to Makstuff's discussion I cleaned my Mathmos from debris and made a video to show the process
"Hi Makstuff, My Astro had the same problem when I got it a while back. my fix was very similar to yours but with a few differences. I used a pantyhose as a filter. I washed the bottle and springs before putting everything back together and also used…"

ImMelting replied to lampfancy's discussion Fluid swap? (Mathmos Astro)

ImMelting replied to Fernando Nicotera's discussion Can someone please explain Mathmos' Metallic to me?
"Yes it seems that the newer ones are clearer but the coating is still very fragile and scratches easily at least at the time they posted that review."

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
Stella.
