Magical Night Lamp Created from Crystals, Tree mushrooms and Timber

Another wonderful nature inspired design. These beautiful night lamps are created by a team of Lithuanian artists. And below is how they describe their glory lamp.

Explorers is who we are. Night lamps is what we seek. Never before documented, discovered in wild northern forests these glowing specimens are just waiting to be gazed upon.

…Or at least we would like you to think so. We don’t just come around these magical specimens, each of them requires scrupulous work.

We are a group of Lithuanian artists who use hand-picked crystals and minerals, fallen tree timber and tree mushrooms to make one of a kind night lamps. With white LEDs, we light the crystals which later can be powered by your computer, power bank or any wall socket using a USB port.

These night lamps are widely known for their hypnotizing abilities, may cause sleepiness if observed while alight during night time. Active use causes dramatic increase in imagination levels. No need to use with caution.
