1506135120_img_20170923_124909_288.jpg Hello just wondering what is the best product to clean your finds with. Found this in the Nundle crystal location and dubbed the find "Monster mouth". He needs his teeth cleaned though.

Oxalic acid I think is the main stuff people use for cleaning iron stains from quartz.

I think brickies acid from Bunnings (75% diluted) will also work.

Thank you for the replies. The photo doesn't quite do it justice as I had to crop the image so much to post. The crystal band runs around three sides of it and really does look like a mouth full of teeth. I'll try your suggestions and post the results. Thanks again.

Did you ever get your Monster Mouth cleaned up and if so what did you use and do you have a picture of it cleaned. I have a few like this so curious to see how you went

1589680499_img_20200511_161026.jpgHi Conan, used the oxalic acid. It was awhile ago and I used it all so I don't have the container, but I think it was the "Diggers" brand from Bunnings. Did the job though.1589680350_img_20200511_161059.jpg.
Good luck with yours mate.
