This piece of Galena is a dark grey and is quite heavy. There are many small shiny cube faces. You can see how they grow upon themselves—thousands of little blocks making up this specimen. The flash is magnificent when turning this piece over in your hand. This is a great collectors piece!
Galena is known for absorbing all the negative energy and bringing you from a high level of energy to rest. It can center all the systems: physical, emotional and spiritual, to bring forth a grounded calm. Galena is believed by some to stabilize the mind working with the crown chakra!
