A beautiful, one-of-a-kind oil lamp made from polished chrysocolla & malachite, beautiful blue and green forms of copper ore from Kenya. The result is a remarkable piece of home decor.
The lamp is crafted with a reservoir affixed to the underside of the rock to hold the oil. When filled with a high quality paraffin oil it produces a nearly smokeless, odorless "candle-sized" flame that will burn for at least three hours, likely more.
Filling the lamp is a simple process:
1) Remove the wick assembly from the rock
2) Insert the funnel we've provided into the hole where the wick came from
3) Fill with a high-quality paraffin lamp oil. We like the oils from Ultra Pure or Firefly.
4) Reinsert the wick and allow a couple of minutes for the wick to "wick" the oil.
5) Light and enjoy!
We've also built all of our Rock Oil Lamps to be sealed on the underside to prevent oil from seeping into the rock, and we also feature a fiberglass wick that won't burn down, never needing replacement
Funnel to aid in filling included.
To add fragrance to the lamp, simply add a couple of drops of your favorite scented oil on the glass wick holder. As the flame heats the holder, the scented oil is diffused.
Metaphysically, malachite is a stone of balance, abundance, manifestation and intention. Malachite absorbs energy and draws emotions to the surface. It clears and activates all Chakras, and is especially helpful in the stimulation of the Heart and Throat Chakras.
Chrysocolla is a very peaceful stone. It is soothing and calming in times of stress, bringing about a gentle release. Chrysocolla gently draws off negative energies of all kinds and is especially helpful during transitional times, such as breakups and job loss, among other similar situations. By the same token, Chrysocolla can help calm the emotions and bring understanding to discordant relationships.
