Great lavaness sort of cloudy
By Tyler Durdan
The product works perfect and does all the lava stuff you would expect from this nostalgic product. One problem I had was any air bubbles inside the purple solution will reflect the light inside the bottle as white light and can make the inside solution look cloudy. Also, the outside of the lamp has some sort of grease marks that you don't see until you have the lamp off. On a side note, the best part of the lava lamp is that the wax floats in a shape and size that is completely random every time so if you're are bored there are hundreds of hours you can spend documenting each lava particle that floats to the top. It is also a perfect example of thermodynamics at work. The custmoer service team was also a great help, I ordered the product express and was given an ETA of 3 days and it ended up coming 7 days later as a gift to my nephew and customer service handled that situation fast and courteaously.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Used to have one of these as a kid, but this one is better
Use as a night light. The black lava is awesome.

from Malden, MA
This is the most disappointing lava lamp I have purchased to date. I have purchased 3 other lamps from Spencers in the years past and they're great, but despite this one looking great in the photos and on the box, this one did not meet expectations. I purchased this one open and off the shelf for a great price, but upon getting it home and turning it on, the purple liquid is WAY TOO DARK to actually see the black lava. Also, the heating coil in the glass tank appears to be broken and part of it sticks up past the black base insert. I recommend people buy a lamp with lighter liquid.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I bought this in the store but figured I'd write a review for those looking to purchase it online. It's really misleading with the colors it shows, I expected a dark purple but even before you turn on your lamp it's noticeably a complete different hue altogether (more like a pinkish purple) and then once the lamps on it looks nothing at all like what is shown. If it's advertised as dark purple then that's how it should look even with the lamp on, but like I said whether it's off or not it still does not match the picture. The cap is also too large for the top of my lava bottle, does not fit snug at all. Keeps wobbling and falling off when I bump into it. And the black isn't even that dark, I left it on all day for the initial warm up and the most I got were two grayish bubbles. I gave it a rest and turned it back on a few hours later, still no more bubbles. Maybe it was defective, I'm not sure. I just completely regret this purchase.

Lava Lamp was a dud!!
from Carlsbad, CA
This lava lamp did not function properly!! I bought it along with a similar one (orange liquid, black lava), the orange one worked wonderfully and was mezmerizing to watch. The lava in this one seemed like a murky,sticky blob that barely moved. I turned in on for 12 hours the first time, then another 12 hours the second time, then even tried switching the bases to see if that would make a difference. In all of the attempts I got the same results. Worse part is that if you want to exchange it you have to order a new one and then send it back for a refund minus the shipping. Not sure I should be paying shipping to return a defective lamp that was sent to me.
