Graphite crystal preservation

I was able to collect a few samples of graphite from a quarry that our club visited. But due to the nature of the crystal (very soft)I will in time ruin the samples from handling. Is there any way to protect the crystals by applying a spray to harden them? If there is, what would you recommend that I apply?
