The Warm Glow of a Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp

12 Jul 2011

The beautiful warm glow of a Salt Crystal Lamp creates a soothing, relaxing atmosphere in any room. They can be used in bedrooms, living rooms, hallways, offices, meditation rooms, therapy rooms, waiting rooms and for Feng Shui energy. The lamp's healing and purifying properties make it ideal around televisions, computers and cigarette smoke. Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamps are crafted by hand to have a unique natural shape. The lit bulb warms the salt and sends light that flows through the crystal releasing healthy negative ions which improve the quality and freshness of the air. While most ionizers are man-made machines, salt crystal lamps are a natural and beautiful alternative from Mother Nature. Salt crystals were formed hundreds of million of years ago at the foothills of the Himalayas, when the salt lakes dried up. The crystalline structure of the rock salt was formed via gradual evaporation and the enormous pressures inside the earth due to the forming mountains. Natural inclusions such as iron (red) or manganese (yellow) give the crystal such beautiful colors ranging from light apricot to a dark orange.
