On May 18th, 1980, Mount Saint Helens blew its top. The volcanic eruption, located just 50 miles northeast of Portland, Oregon and 90 miles south of Seattle ended up taking 57 lives and caused millions of dollars in damage to bridges, railways, and highways in the state. Now, 36 years later, you can own your own little destructive mountain thanks to the Mt. Saint helens Volcano Candle.
Obviously, this thing won’t do nearly as much damage as the real volcano did. In fact, all it’ll do is bring a little bit of the Cascadia mountain range into your own home. The base of the candle base and wax tops are surprisingly accurate replicas. Both are modeled after mount historical topographical data and contemporary LiDAR data to ensure they’re as lifelike as a small 6 inch diameter candle can be. The pure beeswax top of the mountain will slowly melt away as you light it, recreating the historic event, and can be replaced with the two additional tops included once it is done.
