“Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air.”

Himalayan Pink Salt Crystal Lamp from AliExpress – REVIEW
Purchase link: http://goo.gl/LDBVCt
There are cheaper ones sold on Amazon; however this is an 8″ crystal, which weighs a bit more than the 7″ ones. It also came with an LED bulb instead of halogen, which consume less power, last more and are brighter.
The lamp was bubble-wrapped and put inside a cardboard box, inside a plastic bag. As a result, the box was in a pretty rough condition, but the lamp and the bulb was fine. The cord, however, did suffer some damage; and the switch was not working very well.
I messaged the seller, attached a few pictures, and they were really chill about it, and sent me a replacement cable right away.
Note: the standard cable comes with an ON/OFF switch only. Dimmer switches are available for $5.60 here: http://ali.ski/-H88B.
Eggnog for scale – never mind the expiry date, the pics were taken before Christmas 2015.
I have had this lamp beside by bed for about 2 months now. I turn it on as soon as I walk in the room, and like to keep it on until I go to sleep. I do not know if this is an effect of the lamp (I also have changed my eating and exercising habits through the last few months), but I have not gotten flu or cold once this winter, and I noticed that I sleep a lot better. It also creates a chill vibe, and it looks original.
