Candle Making

So, I've been making my own candles lately and I want to start using old glass jars from the kitchen (jelly jars, pickle jars, sauce jars, peanut butter, ect).  I've seen other people do this and it seems like a good way to cut down on the cost.  But I am nervous about using containers that aren't specifically designed to withstand the heat of a candle. 

I haven't really been able to find any articles on which glass jars are ok to use for candle making, and which are not.,  I've seen several people mention in craft forums and stuff that any jar with a gold-colored lid is ok, but I don't know why this would be. 

Does anyone else make their own candles?  What kind of recycled containers do you use?  Any insight would be helpful.  Thanks.
