Old black comb?

1870 7
I have had some in my solar melter for over a week with some days getting over 80 Deg. and hasn't done anything to it. Is this junk or what. Stays in shape of the comb. I have put some other comb in it and that melted. So what is the deal.

Just wait til it gets warmer. Use some screen and cheesecloth and eventually the wax will start melting and running in a light yellow color. Of course it all depends how old and dry those cells are. What is left over after a good melt needs to get thrown away. Take care and have fun
