IRONS IMPORTAND NOTICE:
Each iron meteorite is covered (protected) by a thin layer of Paraloid B44. DO NOT ADD OIL to the sample surface. Just put it in a dry place or add silica gel to the storage box. But it is not necessary. Samples were bathed in sodium hydroxide solution to neutralize acids, and paraloid cut off oxygen and moisture.
