Metallic sheen on the surface of the hematoxylin is due to a surface oxydation. The best way of dealing with it is to take a kin-wip and skim the surface with it. Another solution (more cumbersome) is to filter the hematoxylin.
  Do not mix anything with the hematoxylin because then you will end with a different formula.
  This is a surface chemical product that can be eliminated mechanically.

  Ok, I was trying to find where I found this information, but I can't find it, so.... The metallic sheen I get on top of my hematoxylin, I though was very concentrated (this is the information I was talking about). Is this true and if so, what can I mix it with to extend the life of it? Thanks!
