To clean your samples start with a fine brush and gently brush soil and debris from the rock or mineral. Some rocks can be damaged by brushing too hard. You can use cold water to clean your specimens but be careful since some minerals dissolve in water. Also, never use hot water since the hot water can cause some minerals to crack or break.
