Abstract : The invention relates to a chemical lighting device which can be held in a hand and readily activated. An outer cylindrical sleeve of light transmitting material contains first and second ampoules which are kept separated in the cylindrical sleeve. One ampoule contains a chemiluminescent material and the second ampoule contains an activator fluid. Each ampoule is provided with a reduced neck portion which facilitates breaking the ampoule. When both ampoules are broken, the chemiluminescent material and activator fluid are mixed and light is obtained and transmitted through the cylindrical sleeve.
