The original Lava Lamp celebrates its 50th birthday this year.

The Lava Lamp, symbol of the 60s Hippy Generation is turning 50 this year. The Lava Lamp was invented by British inventor Edward Craven-Walker in 1963. In 1965 Lava Lite sold the first Lava Lamp in the United States. It was called The Century.

The classic space rocket shape was introduced in 1968 with the Aristocrat lamp. In the 70s the Lava Lamp conquered most homes in the United States. The Lava lamp still has many fans and has been in fashion several times since its 70s peak popularity. The melting wax inside the colorful liquid inside the lamp create a psychedelic experience that make these lamps so unique.
