Double Rainbow!

There's a big pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but we can't tell you how to get there. (We promised to keep it a secret.) But if you're looking for some magic, we can to show you how to capture an endless, shimmering rainbow of your very own.

This unique lantern uses a special holographic film between two layers of glass to split flickering candlelight into a spectrum of color that seems to dance within the glass. The effect adds romance to any decor, whether inside or out in your garden, and is particularly striking after dark. Try using it with an electric tea light for an unforgettable children's nightlight. Hologram printed in USA. Lantern made in China.

If using a wax candle, place it in a holder to prevent dripping. Do not immerse glass cylinder or place under running water. Do not leave burning candle unattended. Glass may become very hot.

    This is a beautiful candle. Nicely packaged and great quality. So pretty to look at as the colors dance on the surfaces near the candle. Simply lovely. I gave this gift to a watercolor artist. How perfect is that?

            This was just like a poor candle in a jar! No prism, now color, nothing to make it anything other than that! I am disappointed, of course, for I had hoped for a beautiful light. I would not ever consider buying it again!

                    I received one of these candles as a Christmas gift from my sister in law. I liked it enough to purchase 6 more to gift to various family members. 4 of them will travel to Germany to be given to our overseas family in May, and I am positive they will be delighted.

                            This product looks very plain when you open it, but once you put a candle in it you can see the rainbow of colors. The colors and very bright and vivid. It was a gift, but my guess it putting it outside would have very cool effects because the flame would move around with the wind and catch more colors. Fun gift for your "psychedelic" pals.

                            This colorful candle holder lets you enjoy the rainbow, without the rain! Would you add this pretty prism to your home decor or gift it to someone to brighten their day?

                            I have seen this before and had one given to me as a gift. The prism effect doesn't last long enough...not for me.

                            I used to have one of these, and I broke it! I loved it! Would love to purchase one. This one appears to be of higher quality than my older one, and at a reasonable price point.

                            like to see it a bit cheaper!it is a little wierd that is says "if using a wax candle, place it in a holder" - but the picture does not show one. Would be nice if a small holder was included. It excited me though!!

                            Robert

                            I had one of those, and did like the effect, but do not believe it is worth more than $20.00.

                            Should be one of your best sellers.

                            It's interesting, but it's an over-priced, psychedelic candle holder.

                            Own one of these already, and it is small but lovely and has held up well. It is more subtle than the video implies; pretty, but not "dazzling"! I agree that the price should come down a bit - I paid $19 for mine several years ago.

                            I would love to have this in my living room - candle light with an extra OOMPH!

                            I actually own this prism light! My mother-in-law bought this for me for Christmas last year and I absolutely adore it! It reminds me of the Auroroa Borealis in my own home. It's beautiful! I think it would go over well at Uncommon Goods! :)

                            just another piece of junk MADE IN CHINA that you have to dust.

                            I LOVE this multifaceted design and hope it soon becomes available so that I can purchase it! Price point will make a difference. Will bulk pricing be available for use at events?

                            in the video, the prism with sunlight was stunningly beautiful with blended color, but the intended use with a candle creates a jarring effect to me - the multiple flames don't blend and I don't find that attractive.

                            Love it! Great for my upcoming dinner parties. It makes a wonderful conversational item.

                            It doesn't have the "Uncommon Goods" look to it, it looks somewhat of poor quality as well.

                            Only giving it the thumbs down b/c it's made in China. Otherwise, it's kind of intriguing.

                            I would have loved it if the ENTIRE product was made in the USA. It is beautiful and I have seen these elsewhere.

                            not that unique and do we really need to import more from China - not from my wallet!

                            I have had one of these for a year now and it is a GREAT Piece. Many compliments! Afree that a holder could be included, asI have a holder in mine. Is a bit pricey, but bought it anyway, because I love candles

                            It may be a bit pricey for a candle holder, but it sounds like it would create an amazing ambiance.
