Made from pure salt crystal that has been carved to hold a light bulb with cord & wood stand included. The salt crystal originates in the Himalayan Mountains and each is slightly unique in shape. Each lamp is packaged in a sturdy white box. The exterior of each box features a color image of the style that it is holding. A story card is included with each salt lamp and tea light. Many people believe in the therapeutic value of salt lamps. When lit, salt lamps release negative ions which are thought to cleanse the surrounding air of impurities created by computers and other electrical equipment. The light from a glowing salt lamp is soft, gentle and relaxing.
