A simple Test ?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if there is a simple test to see if this is Galena.  I found it a few years ago, with the detector.  It was just out there all by it self in the middle of nowhere. Very heavy for its size

Hardness and streak tests are as simple as it gets. Galena will have a dark grey to black streak and will easily scratch with a knife. What you may have here is some kind of iron ore material if you found it with a metal detector, put a magnet to it and see if it sticks, if does its not galena.
