Staining happens, this looks pretty normal to me

It is hard to completely clean blocks, there are some cleaners out there made especially for this job but you can also use alcohol something really strong

If you have some ketchup/lemon juice at home you could try letting only the copper base, without any orings or gaskets, sit in one of those a bit and start brushing with a toothbrush till the blocks shiny again, if that doesn't work or show any sign of cleaning the stain/tarnish up go for the industrial stuff.

That's normal wear, it is noting to stress about. I tried most common methods such as lime , vinegar , chemical, no luck. I just accept the way it look. biggrin.gif
