One of the symbols of the sixties – the lava lamp – is half a century old this year and is marking the occasion with these 50th anniversary limited edition Mathmos Astro lava lamps.
It still has the iconic rocket shape, but rather than being powered by mains or battery, the lava is heated up by a simple little tea-light. It takes about 20 minutes for the lava to warm up and get moving, but one tea-light is enough to power the lamp for 3 hours. The lamp is available with a choice of blue, pink or turquoise lava in clear liquid and costs just under £30.
