In the circle is the area just beneath the chamber. Just finished a two hour smoke, and the wax is wet. The white area in the highlighted zone is a reflection from the wet surface, and touching it will leave white hand and fingerprints when it cools.

This is how it appears when cool.

Can you post a picture of the pipe in it’s entirety (zoomed out)? I’m having a hard time telling what I’m looking at.

I do not want to distract too much from the thread's topic, but reading about your interest in anatomically correct meerschaum skulls, I think you might enjoy looking at the following. I was impressed about how well this one is executed. Pictures and condition are not the best. The price is utopic, though:
