I like to store the cymbals vertical. I built a shelf that has slots about 4" wide and carpet on the bottom to protect the edges. I have had cymbals crack and break from storing them horizontal. Easy to stack and forget and easy to put things on unintentionally... so vertical it is for me.
As far as getting a patina on them or "aging" them, the best way is to... use them for many years! Don't try anything to age them... just leave em' be. If you really want that sound, go buy some old, used cymbals.
