Subject: Rust on meteorite

Rust on meteorite

From: Elizabeth M. Scott <emscott>
Date: Tuesday, December 18, 2001
Our Natural history collection contains a few meteorite specimens.
These have a high iron content and rust is forming.  Are there any
storage tips that could help to deter or stop the rust formation
(e.g. isolation--how, humidity control--recommended level)?  Are
there any treatments that could remove the rust?
