i guess it doesn't really create new shadows but i was thinking it would look darker in the shadows that were already there ???

Did you know that it is true that brighter light gives darker shadow :P

The side of the rock should not grow lighter, as it is not hit by the glow, it should remain the same or get darker.

Definitely an improvement.

Nonsense, adding light never reduces the amount of light.  you're either thinking of how the aperture needs to shrink to in order to rebalance exposure (making everything darker), or just how adding brightness can make the rest appear darker by comparison.  For this though, it's a simple matter : turning a light on and seeing that light make things darker.  It's wrong in the only sense of the word :p.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Adarias is correct.  But personally on the edge of the stone I wouldn't make it illuminate at all (don't make it lighter but especially don't make it get darker) because it is very unlikely the light would wrap around the edge of the stone in this case, it would probably just brighten the front face of the rock.

I'm essentially trying to say that without the "or get darker" bit which is just plain wrong.
