"Alibangbang, known as the “butterfly” leaf in the native language or illango, is shaped like a butterfly. This leaf has both medicinal and food flavoring purposes throughout the South Pacific. Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton remains. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes. Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. The resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf). These leaves are adheared to a heat resistant lamp backing. The frame is constructed from wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable; then it’s powder coated in order to ensure longevity of its color. 10” diameter x 48” tall and uses 2 x 40 watt medium base bulb, compact florescent bulb highly recommended."
Compact fluorescent light bulbs are highly recommended. These bulbs will get nice and bright without the added heat of a standard incandescent bulb. These bulbs also last much longer, in many cases over five years. On average, a 13-watt fluorescent bulb will create the same lumens of light as a standard 60-watt light bulb and a 26-watt fluorescent light bulb will have the same light output as a 100-watt incandescent bulb.
