Cleaning: The process of cleaning these is pretty straight forward since many of them have a thin deposit of calcium on them that some CLR can remove with ease. I used a 50/50 mix of CLR and tap water. It does take a little bit longer to clean doing so but a soak overnight got all of mine good and clean.

Eight examples mounted and labeled for the future.
