I want to get a lava lamp but I try to research my purchases before I make them and have come to the conclusion that China lamps are hit and miss as to cloudiness / other problems.
As a child I had a lamp with clear liquid and green wax which must have had bullet-proof construction as it was dropped on the floor several times and shaken when hot on purpose and always seemed to clear up within a few days.
So..! Is mathmos the best brand of lamp? I don't mind paying a bit for something made out of China if it is high quality. Are there any "exotic" colors for the wax such as a metallic silver or gold? I think that a gold wax with green liquid would look very nice.
Right now I am looking mainly at a green wax with blue liquid or a black wax with clear liquid for daytime viewing.
I look forward to everyone's suggestiosn!
