Galena - Pb

Galena is a very common metallic sulfide. It often occurs in cubic crystals and has good cubic cleavage. It is practically the only source of lead, which is used in huge amounts in storage batteries and in shielding from radioactivity. Its name is the Latin name for lead ore.

Galena is easily identified by students by its density, metallic luster and the shape of cleaved cubes.

These specimens are 1" cleavage cubes. Though not large, they are a decent size for the classroom.
