Large Himalayan Salt Lamp weighing 8 - 10 Pounds. Wonderful, raw Himalayan salt transformed into the perfect mood light. Fills the room with a magical, soft orange glow - almost like candlelight. Love these for nighttime to balance all of the blue light we are exposed to all day from computer screens. Raw Himalayan Salt increases negative ions which have a purifying and energizing effect and also help to relieve depression and anxiety. That's a big claim for little ions, but there is science to back it up. Web MD explains it best so scroll to the bottom of the descriptions to read an excerpt from their article "Negative Ions Create Positive Vibes"
Each Lamp comes ready to plug-in and use. A simple cord and bulb are included and the bulb is replaceable. The shape of the salt crystal varies, but each lamp is at least 7". Some are as tall as 12". Each lamp weighs 8-10 pounds. About the size of a cantaloupe.
If you are purchasing this lamp for the benefit of Negative Ions, I recommend 1 lamp per 100 Square feet of space, so about the size of a small bedroom.
Healing Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

Science 101 | Ions are molecules that have gained or lost an electrical charge. They are created in nature as air molecules break apart due to sunlight, radiation, and moving air and water. You may have experienced the power of negative ions when you last set foot on the beach or walked beneath a waterfall. While part of the euphoria is simply being around these wondrous settings and away from the normal pressures of home and work, the air circulating in the mountains and the beach is said to contain tens of thousands of negative ions -- Much more than the average home or office building, which contain dozens or hundreds, and many register a flat zero.
"The action of the pounding surf creates negative air ions and we also see it immediately after spring thunderstorms when people report lightened moods," says ion researcher Michael Terman, PhD, of Columbia University in New York.
In fact, Columbia University studies of people with winter and chronic depression show that negative ion generators relieve depression as much as antidepressants. "The best part is that there are relatively no side effects, but we still need to figure out appropriate doses and which people it works best on," he says.
Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy," says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.
"They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation."
And for a whopping one in three of us who are sensitive to their effects, negative ions can make us feel like we are walking on air. You are one of them if you feel instantly refreshed the moment you open a window and breathe in fresh, humid air.
"You may be one of them if you feel sleepy when you are around an air-conditioner, but feel immediately refreshed and invigorated when you step outside or roll down the car window," Howard tells WebMD. "Air conditioning depletes the atmosphere of negative ions, but an ion generator re-releases the ions that air conditioners remove."
