Very interesting piece. When lit at nite it is more of a warm pink quartz look, than the picture which shows more red. It's size is really about 9 inches wide and 8 inches high, the size quoted is a bit mis leading. Very happy with the light, use it in the bedroom and it gives a warm glow to the whole room and looks like a bowl of glowing quartz. For it's holistic purpose I can't say, but it is a unique , exotic looking light. I am using a 15 watt candelabra base bulb, a bulb is not included. Very glad I took the chance on this item , thank you Overstock.
I received my Black Tai salt lamp and it is absolutely the most beautiful himalayan salt lamp ever. not sure what the person rights about being dull... maybe they didnt know it was suppose to be salt! The box was a perfect white box - the cord was bubblewrapped in put in a separate bright red back so i could find it easily. there were so many extra pieces of himalayan salt chunk, i added it to my other piece that i bought from some discount online shopper. Black Tai is amazing! they always have the best prices, the best quality. Sometimes i shop on their website when they have bagains but I find overstock.com has the best pricing, and the shipping cost - come one! how can you beat it. Black Tai shipped it to me FedEx! I received it literally the NEXT MORNING! UNBELIEVABLE! I LOVE IT! Buy from them it is so worth it!
I love this lamp and the enchanting glow it gives. It was very nicely packaged upon arrival and all parts were included and working well. It is a large size as indicated in the description and the price is very competitive. I would recommend this purchase to a friend. Don't know about hte health effects as it is too soon to tell but it is very aesthetically pleasing. The only revision manufacturers could make would be a dimmer switch as it is too bright to keep on all night.

The lamp itself, once set up and turned on, is really beautiful. The only problem, though, is it came with no instructions on how to hook the cord into the bowl. the cord is very flimsy, and it's difficult to get it to stand correctly in the bottom of the bowl. I finally just stuck it in, filled the bowl with the salt and turned it on. I used a nightlight bulb, and that works well. This item took several weeks to arrive, and it came with LOTS of styrofoam peanuts, which I hate.
I love this item. It is so beautiful and makes a wonderful night light. It casts a beautiful pinkish orange glow.

I was skeptical about purchasing salt lamps online because I prefer to see them before I buy. There can be different hues in the salt lamps and some just aren't as nice. I was so pleased when they arrived. I purchased 2 of them and they were both beautiful. They arrived packaged great but the UPS left it on my door step and it was snowing and the box got wet. Luckily they were packaged well and even the boxes were dry inside. I would definitely order from them again.

I received my lamp within 3 days. However, it had fallen out of it's box into the popcorn packing material and is broken. It did not come with a bulb and no instructions. Although it's very pretty, it is much smaller than the dimensions reported. It's closer to 9"W x 8"T.
This item came to me cracked and broken. THe quality of the product is poor. I would think twice before ordering this item because you will regret it when you open the box and see the dullness of the stones and the overall look of the item. I wish I could return it, but I am stuck with it because they say it is a "personal" item and cannot be returned. If it wasnt for the fact that I have received MANY other products from OVERSTOCK at a great deal and quality, I would stop shopping on their web site. I take this item as a write off and a waste of my hard earned money.
