A misshapen figure that transmutes into Glimmer as you strike down Hive enemies. Lasts a short time. Definitely not made of wax.
A Black Wax Idol is a consumable item that boosts the Glimmer gained from killing Hive enemies for ten minutes. Like other consumables, Black Wax Idols can be used only once, but Guardians can carry multiples in their inventory. They can also be used as currency to purchase items from Eris Morn.
