Lava lamps are quite a unique type of lighting, usually consisting of a cone-shaped base that houses a light bulb. This light bulb heats up a glass teardrop-shaped container which sits above it. Inside the container is the ’lava’, which usually consists of paraffin wax, mineral oil, and carbon tetrachloride. When the lava is heated, it floats up in the alcohol solution, emulating lava. When the light is shut off, the lava will sink back to the bottom and harden until the next use.
The lamp consists of a standard bulb when turned on heats the tall transparent bottle containing small amount water and a mixture of wax. Although other things can also be added such as carbon tetrachloride but the standard lava lamp must have water and wax in the transparent bottle. The wax is not that thick but a little dense as compared with water at room temperature but gets even less dense under warm temperatures as it is more expandable and elastic than water when heated together.
