Overstained GMS

From:"Lott, Robert"

Below is a treatment that really works, but it is best to go really slow and
check microscopically over and over until the desired result is obtained.

1.  De-coverslip sections and run then back to distilled water.
2.  Place section(s) in coplin jar containing 1 part of 1% potassium
"ferri"cyanide to 3 parts distilled water (0.25% potassium
3.  Monitor continuously with the microscope until excess silver has been
4.  Wash well in distilled water.
5.  Re-counterstain as dersired.
