  • A cover for a lamp, used to soften or direct its light
  • lampshade: a protective ornamental shade used to screen a light bulb from direct view
  • A lampshade is a fixture that covers the lightbulb on a lamp to diffuse the light it emits. Conical, cylindrical and other forms on floor-, desk- or table top-mounted as well as suspended lamp models are the most common and are made in a wide range of materials.
  • The shade serves the important function of blocking the glare from a light bulb and is usually the most decorative part of a lamp. The lamp shade can be made of glass, fabric, metal, or other more creative materials.

  • A shiny silicate mineral with a layered structure, found as minute scales in granite and other rocks, or as crystals. It is used as a thermal or electrical insulator
  • any of various minerals consisting of hydrous silicates of aluminum or potassium etc. that crystallize in forms that allow perfect cleavage into very thin leaves; used as dielectrics because of their resistance to electricity
  • Any of a group of hydrous aluminosilicate minerals characterized by highly perfect cleavage, so that they readily separate into very thin leaves, more or less elastic
  • The mica group of sheet silicate (phyllosilicate) minerals includes several closely related materials having highly perfect basal cleavage. All are monoclinic with a tendency towards pseudo-hexagonal crystals and are similar in chemical composition.

My sister and her husband have these mica lamps around the house, giving soft warm light to the rooms. I really liked how the surface texture of the shade reflected the light from the window, too. Some pictures snapped while traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday.

We've had this lamp for quite awhile, but I had moved it close to the wall to accomodate all my macro shooting - that tripod takes up a lot of room. So, for the first time I noticed what a lovely light it gave.
