Tuvok's meditation lamp

A meditation lamp was a small fuel-powered lamp or candle used by Vulcans as a meditative tool. The lamp's taming of the flame, a chaotic, destructive force, serves as a metaphor for the Vulcans' control of their emotions.

Sub-commander T'Pol kept a meditation lamp in her quarters aboard Enterprise NX-01. (ENT: "Breaking the Ice", "The Forge")
