The Groovy History of Lava Lamps
Lava lamps know how to make an impression. After all, illuminated liquids that encase vibrant blobs of wax which seem to glisten and dance within cone-shaped beacons of light that appear to have been designed on another planet are hard to forget.

Today, lava lamps are sold at numerous stores for varying prices (some sell for under $10) and come in a wide array of shapes and colors. Although almost everyone knows what a lava lamp is, few know the background history of how these strange pieces of furniture came into existence.
