Galena, tune your radios.
Not only is this stone a Root Chakra stone, it is also known for its capability in communication.
This stone is mined extensively for its Lead content, luckily the lead is tied up within the sulphides of the stone, so that lead poisoning will not occur from simple handling this stone. However this stone would be toxic if used as a crystal elixir using the direct method (the indirect method should always be used when making an elixir of a crystal you are not familiar with). The lead content is useful for us to feel connected with the earth and also to act as a transducer of Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF). Use of Galena near your computer or electronic equipment can aid in reducing headaches and fatigue caused by these devices.
I have offered Galena to those individuals that are receiving radiation treatments, as it is known to reduce the harmful effects of too much radiation by absorbing the excess the body does not need.
I have always been attracted to the cubic shape and silver colour of this mineral, maybe because it was used in crystal radio kits from decades ago and still available today. Galena is used by mystics to receive the thoughts of others from their past, present and or future. They were thought to utilize unseen waves from Uranus which aided in their metaphysical properties of the stone of communication.
