Sorry Sue, I meant the rapid passage of time.

I do strive to be scary though. ;)

I'll not let on.  ;)
I might even pretend to be scared!

Anyhoo - back to the topic!
Anik,  :-* I was wondering if, when you hold the tealight holder up to the light, can you see a yellow crizzle effect through it? Behind the stripes and through the blue bits too?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sue, I don't quite know.
When I hold the tea light up to the sun, I can see dark brown/orange on the inside, though these colours aren't visible from the outside.  I've tried to take a photo, but not quite successfully. :-[

I believe it does. I need to get the camera out! Light has been really bad here recently, though.
