When dusting the glass "shade", the socket ring crumbled, causing the glass shade to drop from the fixture. When I checked the remaining socket rings, they broke apart as I unscrewed them. The cross section visible in the broken socket pieces are white with a chrome colored "skin". Could the heat from the halogen bulbs cause the socket to deteriorate?
