candlerock comes with a small funnel. To fill, just pull
out all of the wicks, insert the funnel, and gently fill
to about 1/2 inch of the brim of the glass bowl. If you
are filling a single wick candlerock, you may need to lift
the funnel up just a little bit to allow the displaced air
to escape as the oil enters the oil chamber.
oil used in candlerocks is common lamp oil, available at
any department store (Kmart, WalMart, etc). If you wish
us to send you some oil, we would be happy to. Please add
$3.00 to your order.
are made from tan or grey shale. Coming soon: slate.

They are all from the same quarry, and the colors come from
the natural inclusions in the stone. If you were to split
a stone of one color, you may find a stone of the different
color within. But please... do not split them, they are
perfect as they are!

to the incredible number of variations between these particular
candlerocks, there is no way we can possibly pick out a
particular rock for any one customer. We are lucky to be
able to pick out two colors. For sizing purposes, if you
want a smaller stone, the single wick is the way to go,
for a larger, more dramatic stone, a triple wick is best.
weights vary dramatically. Generally speaking, the smaller
rocks are made into single wicks, the middle rocks into
double wicks, and the larger rocks into triple wicks and
bamboo rocks. Thicknesses also vary widely, so a rock with
a smaller top face may be thicker overall, and weigh the
same (or more!) than one with a larger face. Single wicks
are approximately 3-8 pounds; Double wicks are approximately
5-10 pounds; and Triple wicks are approximately 6-12 pounds.
candlerock wick is fiberglass, and should never need to
be replaced. However, if it should for any reason, pull
it out, slip off the glass collar, put it on the new wick,
Each bowl is sealed to the rock with the same kind of clear
silicone used to put together houses and aircraft. It is
applied as a sticky gel about the consistency of toothpaste
that gets into every space, then sets. Each one is then
tested with compressed air to ensure a solid seal.
