Resin, semi-precious stones, and Glow-In-The-Dark pigment, so much fun! These votive holders look just as pretty in daylight as they do at night, with or without a votive candle in them. Use a battery-operated, non-flame votive candle.
In the pictures, I show the holders in daylight (pic #1), under blacklight showing the glow you will get at night (pic #2), and a night with a votive candle in them (pictures 6, 7,8). The votive used had a very warm yellow flame that flickered; it looked really cool!
The sea glass green and sky blue has Peridot, the blue votive has Apache Gold the dark band) and the orange votive has Carnelian, all settled around the rim.
Peridot - Used to moderate anger and strengthen your spirituality.
Carnelian symbolizes activity and promotes community spirit, idealism, and helpfulness.
Apache Gold (Pyrite agate and Marcasite) Used by the Apaches for good luck and in rituals to help protect themselves during battle.
Votive holder size: 2 1/2 inches tall, 3 inches in diameter at the widest point, starting at 2 1/4 inches down to 1 1/2 inches at the bottom. The opening for the candle is 1 3/4 inches.
I have a Glow-in-the-Dark stone soap dish in my bathroom which has no window, is closet size and gathers no light. Somehow the soap dish stays glowing enough for me to see in the dark no matter what time of night. Keep something you need to find right away in the dark in this, just make sure it gets some kind of reflective light or gets charged with a light that gets turned on down and then. A black-light will also charge them for a few hours.
