Galena is a "stone of harmony" and is said to bring healing, calmness, efficiency, receptivity, communication and insight. It is used metaphysically for detoxification of all kinds. It has been used in crystal healing to decrease inflammations and skin eruptions, and help with circulation problems and hair growth. Please note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information. Galena is a primary source of lead, and as such is not recommended for internal use such as making gem elixirs, or for children. It has grounding energies and is related primarily to the root chakra.
