The Lantern is an item used in Adventure Mode as a tool which emits light. It gives off the same amount of light as when the player is carrying a torch. It is different from a torch however, as it requires Oil to remain lit. For each Oil in a player’s inventory, the Lantern will remain lit for one minute.
