"Mold" on/in Monitor Screens

I was getting a Soroc IQ-135 ready for VCF and noticed the "mold" on the
outside edges of the screen between the CRT and the outside glass
shield. Someone on the list wanted a sample (can't remember who) to do
an analysis to find out if it was indeed mold. I now have samples if
there is anyone who can do an analysis of the stuff.
In looking at it, my guess is that it is not a function of something
living (plant or otherwise) but rather a crystallization taking place in
what appears to be a silicon based substance (RTV?) It looks like it
would be relatively easy albeit time consuming to separate the CRT from
the cover glass. Does anyone know what material was originally used?
