Himalayan Salt Lamp
This Himalayan Salt Lamp is made from a chunk of pink Himalayan salt. The salt has a carved-out center in which to place a light bulb or heat source.
Pink Himalayan Salt is a salt rock crystal that comes from the Himalaya Mountains in Asia. True Himalayan salt mostly comes from the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan.
The pink colour of Himalayan Salt is reportedly due to a high concentration of minerals.
Himalayan salt lamps work by releasing negative ions into the air in a process called air ionization.
The disturbance of water molecules naturally produces negative ions. Waterfalls, rain showers, and crashing waves all generate negative ions.
There is water vapour in the air carrying pollutants and toxins, which is attracted to the surface of the chunk of Himalayan Salt. The pollutants and toxins fall on the salt, and clean water vapour remains in the air.
