That is pretty normal for candles in glass jars to do. It has to do with the petroleum products and imperfections in the wax. Even when your candle is buring with a clear flame there is carbon being produced as the wax burns. This will deposit as soot on the inside of the glass. This is a perfectly normal physical thing to happen and contains no magical meanings.
