Add a sleek and curious decoration to your room with the Ferrofluid Magnetic Lava Lamp.

This unique display is similar to the famous lava lamp only the grooviness has been replaced by scientific fascination. Instead of colored wax, the lamp has black ferrofluid, an amazing liquid containing magnetic particles. Use the included magnets to manipulate the weird substance, making it jump, dance, and swirl inside the glass.

If you prefer a more hands-off approach, watch the ferrofluid formulate droplets that rise and fall in the lamp’s transparent liquid. It creates a hypnotizing display that will draw your gaze with its odd beauty.

Warning: This product is designed for US 110/120V outlets only!

Magnetic marvel

The lava lamp, much like psychedelic music and teenage rebellion, was invented in the 60’s but has resonated with subsequent generations. Now the classic display has evolved from retro charm to modern distinction in the Ferrofluid Lava Lamp.

Like a wax lava lamp, the strange substance heats up and flows in hypnotizing patterns inside the glass cylinder. The cool and curious nature of the display fits the sleek design of the lamp to create a decidedly unique accent piece.

Science just got far out.

Weird and wonderful

The Ferrofluid Lava Lamp is a striking desktop decoration that also contains an addictive desktop distraction. In fact, ferrofluid is so amazing, we sell it as its own toy!

Ferrofluid is imbued with incredibly small iron particles that react with magnets to create fascinating interactions. Use the included rare earth magnets to make this otherworldly substance move in a myriad of ways within the lamp.

Distinct decor

Standing 15” tall, the Ferrofluid Lava Lamp is an eye-catching decoration that enhances both the curious and the awesome factor of any room.

The light in the bottom of the lamp emits a soft amber glow that accents the black shapeshifting ferrofluid inside. Sit back and watch the black blobs pirouette in the transparent liquid or grab the magnets and move them yourself!
