5 Types of Crystal Lamps (and What They Mean!) - Inspire Me Naturally

Crystal lamps are a wonderful addition to any home. Not only do they look beautiful, they can also assist with clearing negative energy, promoting better sleep, and even bringing more love into your life!

When it comes to choosing a crystal lamp, there are several different options - from Amethyst to Rose Quartz and Himalayan salt lamps. Not sure which crystal lamp is right for you? Keep reading as we guide you through our top 5 crystal lamps for the home, and the unique properties of each one.

Himalayan salt lamps

You’ve probably already heard a thing or two about Himalayan salt lamps thanks to their recent surge in popularity over the last few years! These stunning ancient crystals are carved from authentic pieces of Himalayan pink salt, and emit a soft, warm glow. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and range in colour from pink to orange and amber.

What are Himalayan salt lamps good for?

Himalayan salt lamps are thought to assist with the following:

  • Purifying the air. Himalayan salt lamps are naturally hygroscopic, which means they absorb moisture from the surrounding air and in doing so, trap dust particles and other allergens. This is why Himalayan salt lamps are often popular with allergy and asthma sufferers.
  • Releasing negative ions. Himalayan salt lamps release negative ions, which are thought to have a positive effect on our mood and energy levels. This can be especially helpful to combat EMF radiation from spending lots of time behind a screen. 
  • Improving sleep. With a soothing amber glow, Himalayan salt lamps also make wonderful night lights - particularly for kids.

Selenite lamps

Selenite lamps are created from selenite chunks that have been hollowed out to create a light source. Selenite has a translucent, pearly-white hue that makes it easy for light to pass through, creating a soft, calming glow.

Selenite lamps are most commonly found in a tower-like form with a chiselled, jagged appearance.
