Galena
Energy Vibrations

Most Galena is mined industrially and smelted down for iron. But these charming little natural cubes of rough Galena come from a small mine in Morocco and were always intended for the crystal market. Add one to your medicine bag to help transform your life in wonderful ways! If you're in the mood for a little science experiment, these rough Galena are fun. Melt them to smelt iron. Compare them to Hematite for a simple geology lesson in hardness and streak. Or use them to make a crystal radio so you hear all the gossip on the AM radio waves.

Galena from Morocco

This Galena comes from a small-scale mine in Morocco. The mining has a low environmental impact and is relatively safe for miners.

This mine and lapidary is a family business in Morocco. The owner of the mine polishes some of his stock and leaves the rest rough. The business is also an exporter and sells exclusively at large gem shows.

I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary at the 2017 Tucson Gem Show. Most of his stones were rough, rather than polished, but what caught my eye was his beautifully polished Selenite which came in a variety of shapes and colors. I asked him to tell me about his business and he proudly told me that he had built the business up from nothing 20 years ago and his sons will inherit it when he is ready to retire. We talked together about the importance of buying directly from the miners rather than middlemen, whenever possible.

In 2022, he greeted me as “sister!” and when I asked him about a certain mineral, he only had larger pieces available. When I said I needed smaller sizes, he told me it would be no problem and grabbed a hammer. A few minutes later, I had the sizes I needed.

Galena Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2017  •  Updated June 2023  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Galena is a silvery mineral and the most important lead ore.  It melts at a low temperature and was first smelted in prehistoric campfires.  Thousands of years later, it would be instrumental in creating the first radios and other electronics.  Unsurprisingly, it is a stone for transformation and for having an open mind.  It helps us to be more than what we have been, to embrace new beginnings, and to be curious about, rather than dismayed, by complexity.  Galena is a Sulfide mineral that looks very similar to Hematite, an Oxide mineral.  While both are silvery and heavy, they are easy to distinguish because Galena is much softer and has a grey streak instead of a red one.
