So with all these suppliers online and nearby, how can you tell if the lamp is authentic or fake? Watch for these warning signs:
1. It costs close to nothing and looks very white.
Himalayan Mountains have a limited resource of salt, especially deep red and pure white variety, and the governments of these countries raise the taxes on mining companies on an annual basis. A small size white or red Himalayan salt lamp would normally cost several times more than the pink variety.
2. It is very large and heavy, but gives out a lot of light.
Once a genuine Himalayan salt lamp exceeds about 20 pounds, it will no longer emit light in a uniform pattern. That’s just the nature of genuine Himalayan salt.If you’ve got a large lamp that seems to light up your entire bedroom, that’s a good sign it’s made of something other than real salt.
3. It is unbreakable.
Authentic Himalayan Salt Lamps are fragile. If you dropped your lamp or the shipping box came damaged, but the lamp looks good, it is probably not genuine
4. Your lamp handles moisture well
If you salt lamp is genuine, then it will absorb all the moisture around, start sweating and shrinking overtime. Himalayan salt lamps should be kept in dry areas. You could test it by rubbing the lamp with wet cloth. The lamp should start weeping and look smooth.
5. No changes in health and surrounding
Now a Himalayan Salt Lamp is not going to fix all your health issues, but after a few weeks of having it on you should notice a few changes:
- reduced allergy and asthma symptoms
