how to clean up specimen Empty acid

Hi Pedro
When using allibrite you need to change the liquid over at least once a week, this is a slow proccess, if there is other rock that is not quartz then hydrochloric acid is the go, is that the the bit you found on the club trip???
Are you interested in writing an article about the trip for the newsletter? ,PM me
cheers
