    Your lava lamp is likely mineral oil in polyethelene glycol/water solution since they are immiscible. However, it sounds like it has been shaken or otherwise has emulsified part of the mineral oil/goo in the lamp into lots of little blobs and the heat from the lightbulb alone is not sufficient to 're-blob' or coalesce the lava. I don't recommend taking the lamp apart so enjoy the little blobs or go buy a new lamp and try not to agitate it.
