is an older used lava lamp that has that hippie look. Peace love and the flower child days are gone but with this you can relive those years or just tell your kids its a pretty lamp. I cant find the tip but a silver tip is fine and easy enough to find, no other damage at all. Works well and has a dimmer on it to set that mood and control how fast the lava moves inside. Hurry this beauty wont last! Its not an easy find. This measures 17 inches tall as it stands.
