Hi Gang:
   I think this was discussed before but I don't remember the outcome. I
frequently have occasion to touch my meteorite specimens (to catalog them,
look at them under a microscope, show them to newbies, etc.) I am concerned
that the oil, salt, etc. from my hands will in some way damage them or begin
to deteriorate them. A few questions:

1. Should I be wearing gloves when I handle them? Latex?
2. How do I clean the ones I've touched gloveless in the past?

   Thanks for your help,
