Beeswax From The Philippines



This is a 300 year old chunk of solid beeswax at the the County Museum of Tillamook Oregon. What's interesting about it is it came from a wrecked Spanish galleon that sailed from the Philippines when it was a Spanish colony.

Beeswax? Really?

Ancient Filipinos use beeswax in making stringed musical instruments called the kudyapi. The Europeans that lost these precious cargo in the Southwest coast of the United States however use it for cheese making, modeling material, sealant for bullets and stabilizer for explosives.
