Oil lamps are a light source for use in dark places.
Empty oil lamps can be made using the Crafting skill at level 12 by glassblowing molten glass, or bought from Dorgesh-Kaan or from other players. An empty oil lamp must then be filled with lamp oil to obtain an oil lamp (oil). To light it, players require level 12 in Firemaking.
A lit oil lamp must be extinguished first before it can be combined with an oil lantern frame (forged from an iron bar) to make an oil lantern for 50 Crafting experience. Combining the lantern frame with the lamp does not require a furnace or anvil.
Lit oil lamps will ignite swamp gas in the Lumbridge Swamp Caves, making it dangerous to use. It can also go out if you fail the stepping stone Agility obstacle to the Tears of Guthix cavern, although you can relight it immediately.
