Candle lantern (black) detail.png

The Black candle lantern is a type of member's only lightsource used in the Firemaking skill. It is made by using a black candle with a candle lantern (empty). A black candle lantern has the same function as a white candle lantern, except a black candle lantern is untradable.

To make a black candle lantern the player must first have an unlit black candle, a candle lantern frame (made with the Crafting skill) and at least level 4 Firemaking. The player places the black candle in the lantern frame and lights it using a tinderbox to create a candle lantern (lit black). No experience is received when lighting a black candle lantern.

Candle lanterns do not ignite the swamp gas in the Lumbridge Swamp Caves like an open lit candle does. However, if you fail while jumping across the stepping stone Agility obstacle on the way to the Tears of Guthix cavern, all candle lanterns you are carrying would break into useless broken glass. More advanced light sources like the mining helmet or Seer's headband do not have this issue.
