It was recently recommended that I try using Liebenzeller rosin, specifically Gold II. As I was reading up on it, however, I noticed that some have said that metal-infused rosin can hurt the varnish of your violin. Before I spend $30 on rosin, I'm curious to know if this actually has happened to anybody, if it's just "theoretically" possible (perhaps only if you use enough to give you violin a good dusting haha), or even just plain impossible.
Also, has anybody compared the new Liebenzeller to Larica? Which most closely follows the original formula everybody raves about?
