Tips for looking after your crystal lamp

Tips for looking after your crystal lamp

  • Unlike salt lamps, our crystal lamps do not sweat so there's no messy drips. Crystal lamps can be placed on any stable surface.
  • Be careful handling your lamp. Crystal although heavy is fragile.
  • A Dimmer Switch is NOT recommended as it holds all its charge at the switch which can cause the lamp to overheat.
  • Dust your crystal with a dry cloth and tooth brush.
  • Quartz and agate lamps can be cleaned in water but we advise against using cleaning sprays. 
  • Be careful cleaning your selenite lamp as little shards can come off (they make nasty splinters). 
  • Cleanse your crystal lamps energy with the smoke from incense, sage or palo Santo. 

If you have bulbs blowing regularly, here are some things to take into consideration:

  • The globe is not quite screwed in firmly enough to touch both contacts.
  • The globe is touching the inside surface of the lamp.
  • The bulbs used in a crystal lamp is meant to be in a stationary position. If it is moved suddenly or are exposed to vibration the globe may blow.
  • High humidity can cause bulbs to blow.
  • A large current drawing appliance on the same circuit that is turned on/off and there is a momentary power spike.
  • There is excessive ‘micro vibration’ nearby like a TV too close.
  • After a bulb has been changed the cord and bulb has been pushed too far to the top of lamp and is touching the crystal.
  • Unplug the cord, removing the bulb and giving it a brush with an old toothbrush. If any crystal or glass gets into the connection due to a blown bulb it can cause issues.
