Scanning textured prints

I have a few prints I would like to scan that have a textured surface. Under magnification they appear to have little diamond-shaped dots all over the surface. When scanned, there is a sort of rosette pattern, visible especially in areas of even tone, like the sky.

With Photoshop I have tried all sorts of techniques: blurring then sharpening, despeckle filter, reduction of resolution after scanning it higher than necessary, scanning slighltly off-angle, etc. Nothing seems to work very well.

Does anyone here have a solution to this problem?

Thanks for the links. I was very unsure how to describe my problem, but it is clear that "textured" got the idea across. Thanks, again!
