Description

Fancy shiney minerals? Sounds like galena is for you! Enjoy a small baggie of galena pieces. 

Galena is a beautifully chrome mineral that is surprisingly dense. It has also been refered to as 'lead glance' and is the main ore of lead. 

 

For our fellow nerds out there- 

Galena is a lead(ll) sulfide, PbS. It has a Moh's hardness of 2.5- 2.75 and a cubic crystal system. The specific gravity is between 7.2-7.6, so it is much heavier than you'd expect! 

 

Please note that each bag will look different than the others due to the nature of pieces of minerals. It's best to keep this away from children and pets as licking galena is unhealthy.

 

Please note this item will not fit in an envelope. When selecting a shipping method, please do not choose 'Large Envelope' because it will not fit and the shipping price will need to be adjusted after your purchase.
