With regard to cleaning minerals: Two other experts in the field are

    Chris Collins

and me, at the address below.

Chris has run the only formal geological conservation diploma course
in the world, and I am (so far) the only North American graduate of
it. We both teach geological conservation courses in the US through
International Academic Projects, and recently posted a notice on the
upcoming standard and advanced short courses, to be held in May at
Yellowstone National Park. Cleaning minerals will definitely be a
significant topic in these.
