I've used Erlich's haematoxylin and my recipe has 0.5 grams of sodium iodate as a good instant-ripener for 600ml of solution, just to give you an idea of scale.
Good luck!

Subject: [Histonet] weils stain for myelin

        I am asking for a colleague who was doing a Weil's stain for myelin.

        One of the ingredients, 2% alcoholic haematoxylin requires a
ripening process for at least 6 months.

        As the student cannot wait that long, I was wondering if
anyone could supply a quicker method, or suggest something to hasten
the ripening process of the above.

        Thanks from down under
