List of Magical Items in Fablehaven - Umite Wax Markers and Candles

Umite Wax Markers and Candles

Umites are sprites that live in the rain-forest in hive-like colonies and make honey and wax like bees. Their wax is used to make candles and markers. If you write with a marker made of their wax, you can't wipe it off, and you can only see what you wrote in the light of properly enchanted candle made from this wax. Vanessa gives a set to Kendra, and they use them to write secret messages to each other as a plot element of the story. Patton Burgess used umite wax markers to write the Journal of Secrets in a secret fairy language and Kendra must use umite candles to read the book.

Famous quotes containing the words candles and/or wax:

    Both nuns and mothers worship images,
    But those the candles light are not as those
    That animate a mother’s reveries,
    But keep a marble or a bronze repose.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Sings his great theory of natural origins and of wise conduct; Plato
    smiling carves dreams, bright cells
    Of incorruptible wax to hive the Greek honey.
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)
