Excerpt from Mineral Waxes: Their Preparation and Uses

Since refined ozokerite resembles beeswax in appearance, and is also capable of replacing that substance in many of its uses, ozokerite not only finds extensive employment in the making of candles - which, by the way, lack the aroma of wax, especially on being extinguished - but is also used largely and for practically the same purposes as paraffin. Unfortunately, the popularity of ceresine has led to extensive adulteration, cheap brands, consisting of ceresine melted with paraffin and colophony, being placed on the market at prices far below those of the genuine article, which they consequently displace unless in exceptional 'cases.
