Oh, the hot rock's is a total transplant and I painted it gold. I just love the vintage look of lava lamps so I paint almost all my new lamps a gold or even dark brown. I think I've left 2 silver! Thanks for the comments!

I got my recipe from cpu2hot's Perfect goo and liquid blog. It's really easy-It's just equal parts of paraffin wax, perk and mineral oil. I'm betting the mineral oil is what makes it so transparent. I've never heard of adding this too the goo. I usually just do a cup of each so I have extra on hand. It's nice because it will harden but when you want to use some you just have to stir it and it liquifies again and you can just pour it in a globe without heating. Also, I've noticed that the transparent wax happens when you add only one dye or none. If I mix 2 dyes it looks a lot thicker. The red goo is just red candle dye. I did add 2 drops of yellow food coloring to the water for a vintage look. Hope this helps. It's easy!

Question, could you check out this discussion I started and tell me if this looks like champagne mist..Thanks.

Yeah, I smell such a slight smell coming from it and that's when it's been run for a while. I've seen a lot of different styles of these and was suprised this one was so plain, but I really enjoy it-It has such a unique effect. Thanks for the comment, I'll pass it on to my husband-the restorer!

No, not that I saw, or I would have gotten another color of wax! But the ones on ebay and at target have blue liquid and red goo. They are really pretty.

Hi Jonas, I just read your reply about the rain lamp. I love them and am getting one from my grandmother soon. I have heard that mineral oil is toxic when heated-sounds weird, but I have a baby on the way and am not sure I'll even take a chance. Do you know anything about that? Also, in your first picture of you pyramid you have the neatest lava/glitter lamp on the floor on the very far right. It has green glitter(i think) and is a really unique bubble shape. Do you mind me asking if you know where to find one?

Hi Jonas, I admire your collection. Would you consider selling your Lava Brand wave machine.

Hi Jonas,

Please check your email.

Yo Jonas:

Look what I found for you:


Let me know if you get it. Or if you don't see this in time, maybe I will buy it and see if you'll trade me one of your Florence Art oil glitters.

Let me know how this works out.

Hi again,
I am not sure if you saw this or not, but there was one of your swiss golden beacon lamps that just ended on eBay a few days ago:
Sorry you missed it. I will keep my eyes open for you.

Hi again,

One other thing I forgot to mention. You probably already know about this, and I don't know if it would be a waste of time or not, but there's a great little Mom and Pop place that are experts in old motion lamps. They even wrote a book on them (I believe). Here's a link to their site:
I emailed them about an old motion lamp to see if they knew where to look for it, and was very surprised that they actually had it (even though it wasn't on their website at all). If they don't actually have one, they very likely might know where to find the revolving beacon type lamp you were looking for. I think they've been around for a while. Hope this helps.

Hi there. It looks like you are very well versed in all kinds of lamps! I am a newbie. I saw a Florence Art Co. red oil glitter lamp on eBay the other day. I have never seen one of these before and had no reference point for it's rarity or value. I couldn't be there for the end of the auction. It was started at $9.99. I bid $78 for it. Someone outbid me at the last minute. Do you have any ideas how much these go for and where I might be able to find one? I am going to try to put the link here to the eBay auction that I was outbid on: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170225037148&ssPageName=STRK:MEDW:IT&ih=007
This is what the lamp looks like. Any ideas?

Also, I saw a posting that you were looking for a revolving beacon lamp. I tried to look online for you, but see you've been to most everywhere I already went. I did find one patent photo of one of their lamps - here's the link:
I don't know if you've seen this shape before or not. Also, here is a photo of an item on eBay which says it's by that same Swiss Harmony company:
I know it's not what you're looking for, but maybe it had a different shade before and someone replaced it with that. There's also one other strange patent:
I can't make out if this is a lamp or what it is.
In any case, since I was asking you for help, I tried to see if I could do anything for you in return. I live in PA and do a lot of antique shopping. if I ever see one of those kind of lamps, I will let you know. If I see one at a flea market and it might "get away", if you have a price range that you would be willing to pay for these, that would also be helpful to know. I will keep my eyes peeled as I do a lot of this type of shopping. If possible, please let me know anything you can about what I should expect to pay for one of these Florence Art Co. glitter oil lamps and if you'd be willing to part with one or you know where I might be able to find one, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks very much for your time and help.

Hi Jonas. Remember that Kaleidolite that I missed out on awhile ago? Thank goodness for non paying buyers! It popped up for sale again....

Do you happen to have a extra pumpkin icon lava lamp that you would sell to me? I have been looking for one for a long time.
