Candles are made from placing any type of string (apart from Sinew and Grass Cordage), Jute Fiber, or Sisal Fiber in a vessel or barrel of Wax.
Like Torches, Candles can be placed on the ground to light an area. Unlike Torches, candles do not sputter, and thus are safe to use around flammable blocks. They cannot be placed on the sides of blocks unless they are supported by a Candle Holder.
A candle holder can be made from casting Brass, Sterling Silver, Silver, Rose Gold, and Gold in the appropriate Candle Holder molds. Candles in Candle Holders burn more brightly and for a longer time, and can be mounted on the sides of blocks. There are three kinds of Candle Holders, which carry up to three candles. Brass only requires a Single Candle Holder Mold, while Sterling Silver and Silver require a Double Holder Candle Mold, and Rose Gold and Gold requires a Triple Candle Holder Mold.
