Some were made of hard precious stone, such as quartz, serpentine, and lapis lazuli, suggesting that the candle’s use was highly regarded.

These curled out of the flame as it consumed its fuel, eliminating the need to trim the wick as the candle burned. Here is how a housewife recommends a vegetable-based substitute for stearin: Take the common prickly pear and boil or fry it in the tallow, without water, for half an hour, then strain and mould. I use about six average-size leaves to the pint of tallow (by weight 1 pound of leaves to 4 pounds of tallow), splitting them up fine. They make the tallow as hard as stearin, and do not injure its burning qualities in the least.

Stir the whole until it boils, and skim off what rises. Let it simmer until the water is all boiled out, or until it ceases to throw off steam. Pour off the lard as soon as it is done, and clean the boiler while it is hot. If the candles are to be run in a mould, you may commence at once, but if to be dipped, let the lard cool first and cake. * Superior Spermaceti American whaling ships often brought in cachalots, or sperm whales, and it was soon discovered that the fatty solid substance called “spermaceti” (erroneously thought to be the whale’s sperm, hence the term “spermaceti” and the name “sperm whale”) could be used to produce splendid candles.
