Subject: Light exposure for kauri gum

Light exposure for kauri gum

From: Joanna Morton <joannam<-a>

Our museum intends to include a number of artefacts carved from the
fossilised resin of the native NZ kauri tree (ie a type of copal) in
a permanent exhibition.

Does anyone have information or suggestions regarding recommended
lux levels and display periods for kauri resin/copal artefacts?
