Candle lantern (empty) detail

The empty candle lantern is an incomplete light source used in the Firemaking skill. It can be made with Crafting from 1 molten glass or obtained as a drop from a cave bug. Candle lanterns can also be obtained by looting an eclectic impling that has been caught. They cannot be traded whilst lit.

The empty candle lantern can be filled with a white candle to create a candle lantern (white), or with a black candle to make a candle lantern (black). It can then be lit to produce a candle lantern (lit white) or candle lantern (lit black) respectively.

Lighting the candle lantern requires a tinderbox and level 4 Firemaking. No experience is received when lighting a candle lantern.

Candle lanterns are somewhat recommended for the Lumbridge Swamp Caves, as they have a lower chance of igniting the swamp gas, which will cause an explosion and hit the player for up to 200 life points. However, a better alternative is a bullseye lantern, and if that is not available then an oil lantern will suffice.
