After the destruction of the Two Trees Yavanna examined their remains and told the other Valar that if she could use the light of the [[Silmarils]] she could heal them. For Yavanna confessed that even as a Valar, who are mighty under Eru, she could never conjure the same light again in this world. [[Fëanor]]<ref>{{S|Darkening}}</ref> refused to give up the Silmarils, although Morgoth had already taken them when he made this decision.  Doing what she and Nienna could, they managed to bring forth one silver flower from Telperion and one golden fruit from [[Laurelin]].  She gave these to her husband Aulë, who fashioned vessels for them and thus created the [[Moon]] and the [[Sun]].<ref name="Sun"/>
