About Stone Candles

The Founder’s Story

In the 1960’s, Michael hand-crafted glowing veneer candles in Berkeley, California. Inspired by Venetian millefiori, these unique candles epitomize the union of creativity and craftmanship, and became a pop culture hit throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. In the early 2000’s, Michael’s son, Daniel, joined his father to create today’s Stone Candles, bringing a fresh and modern take to the family business.

Together, they’ve designed and released over 2,700 products and have successfully created their own 100% natural blend of Coconut Wax candles. Stone Candles is committed to creating products that are natural, eco-friendly, and sustainable, while never sacrificing the highest level of quality.


In 2015, Stone Candles partnered with Exceptional Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to creating opportunities for people with disabilities. Together, they created Light 4 Life Cause, a Private Label manufacturing facility. Light 4 Life Cause has created numerous jobs for people with disabilities, who account for 60% of the Stone Candles workforce.

The California Disability Services Association awarded Light 4 Life with the Employer of the Year award in 2016. In 2018, Source America, a federally recognized agency, awarded Light 4 Life with the Small Business Partnership Award. Each candle purchased with the Light 4 Life logo directly supports this wonderful cause, bringing a little more light into the world with each strike of a match. 

Light 4 Life Mission: The Light 4 Life Cause and Exceptional Children’s Foundation have entered into a unique partnership that creates jobs for adults with disabilities through the manufacturing of these beautiful candles and home fragrance products. Light a candle, surround yourself with beautiful fragrance, and empower individuals with disabilities with Light for Life Cause.
