Last updated 01-07-05

I saw this at Wallgreens yesterday, saw that it had LEDs in it, and knew I had to have it...for this website, of course.

What this is is a heavy crystal sculpture with an uplighting base that features three LEDs (red, yellow, and blue) connected to a circuit that displays one or two colors at once, changing them approximately once every 1.5 seconds.

It is powered by three AA cells which you supply yourself.


The Crystal Art unit needs to be fed first, so do that now (see directly below), and then you'll be ready to roll.

Set the base on a level surface, place the included rectangular crystal sculpture on top of it, and press the button on the side of the base.

Push the button again to turn the LEDs off.

Remove the crystal piece, and set it aside. Turn the base upside down. Slide the battery door in the direction of the arrow shown over the "OPEN" embossing, and swing it up. This door should stay attached.

If necessary, remove the three used AA cells and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert three new AA cells, orienting each cell so its flat-end (-) negative faces the spring for it in each chamber. Once the unit is full (three cells), swing the battery door down, and slide it in the direction of the arrow embossed under the word "CLOSED".

Set it back where you picked it up, and place the crystal sculpture on top of the unit.

Current usage ranges from 80mA to 103mA.

The unit does not come with batteries; you'll have to either have them on hand or go buy some.

Because this is a household lamp and not a flashlight, the punishments I bestow upon flashlights will not be bestowed upon the Crystal Art base. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

This product uses LEDs, and as a result, runs much, much, MUCH cooler than a light base that uses an incandescent light blub. So yes, you can place PLASTIC objects on it and they won't melt, become deformed, or even become hot enough to start an unwanted fire.

Test unit was purchased on 01-06-05 at a local Wallgreens in their seasonal aisle, which was 75% off - so I paid $2.50 for it.
