The stalactite-shaped torch of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City was made with a variety of materials to represent various ideas.
  • Lightweight glass: winter and ice
  • Old silver: the West, flowing water
  • Shiny silver: the heart and speed of the athletes
  • Copper: fire, passion, and the history of Utah

The grooves in the silver help evoke a natural ice stalactite, and the frosted glass orifice from which the flame rises is a one-of-a-kind feature amongst all of the Olympic torches. It's recalls the theme of the 2002 games, to "Light the Fire Within".
