Yes, I have it. Will get it photocopied and post (please privately send full postal address).
If anyone else is interested, I will get it typed and posted (it's aldehyde fuchsin as far as I can see).

Subject: Luna's stain for elastin

Does anyone have a protocol for Luna's stain for elastin?  I'm having 
trouble finding a protocol or even a paper which has the details.  I 
believe it is a modification of Luna's technique by Kligman.  If anyone has 
a copy of Kligman's paper "Luna Technique.  A beautiful stain for  elastin" 
Am J Dermatopathol 1981 Summer; 3(2): 199-201, I would be very grateful if 
you could pass it on.

Thank you in anticipation - I know Histonet won't let me down!  After hours 
of trawling the internet and histology books, there is only one sure fire 
way of getting the answer.

Kind regards,
