Wax coated with a rough texture. Imprinted with a crow image. Gives off a soft, flickering, ambient glow. Twist off the bottom cap and insert batteries at the time you want the candle to start glowing. It will automatically shut off in 6 hours and come on again at the same time the next day. To reset, twist the cap at the desired time enough to break the connection then twist back on. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included). Holders sold separately.
