If you’re looking for the perfect gift, glass candles make the perfect choice. For centuries, Valyrians have been using glass beads and crystals to make a variety of beautiful candles that can be found throughout the world today. All Valyrians, including the Freehold rulers, were rooted in fire or blood. The sorceresses of the Freehold would often see beyond mountains, oceans, and deserts by the light of one of these amazing glass candles.
During the night, they would gather together on the battlefields and place the most beautiful glass candles under the blazing moonlight. They would speak with one another across great distances, half a world away, sitting upon their candle lit vigil. A good candle lit vigil could lead to a quick victory, but if things did not go according to plan the sorceress could end the battle, kill her own lord and seize control over the Freehold. The sorcerer would then rule for years, or even decades, until she died or the next noble families came to power. These candle lit votives have led to many legends about the mysterious powers that the glass of this type of candle possesses.
Glass candles have also been the inspiration for many Hollywood movies, including “The Burning Sands,” where a sorceress uses fire to burn a man alive, and “The Last Samurai,” in which a samurai burns his master to death using a glass candle. These movies are just a few examples of the wide range of stories told about these beautiful pieces of glass. However, what many people don’t realize is that glass candles have actually had a place in history for thousands of years.
In ancient times, the Romans used glass candles as a form of currency. Some of the first glass beads to be discovered in Europe were used to make coins. Some of the most valuable coins to ever exist, however, were made out of glass beads. This evidence suggests that the Romans were quite impressed with the beauty of the bead.
The Romans continued this tradition by using glass candles as decorations in their homes and offices. While some of the glass candles they used during this time were quite expensive, the average person could afford to buy a glass candle or two and place them around their home, decorating any room of the house. In fact, the very first glass candles used for decorations in the Roman Empire were often made out of amber. Amber was a substance found in abundance throughout the world, from India to Greece, and Egypt.
Glass candles continue to be used throughout the world as decorative items, from making necklaces and arm rings to decorating the mantels of famous castles and mansions. As the use of glass continues to grow in popularity, more information about the amazing qualities of this unique candle is being uncovered every day.
