Germanium is an elemental metal. It is almost never found on its own in large quantities as a solid metal, but is a component of certain hard to find ores, found in various vegetables and waters, and is used in Argentium Silver. It is said to be found in large quantities in the holy waters at Lourdes, France, for instance. Germanium is said to be an excellent energy conductor, and to project protective energies. It is said to be a boost to inner journeys and astral travel. It is purported to be helpful in crystal healing for strong healing of all kinds, cancer, immune system support, viruses, stimulating natural "killer" cells, AIDS, HIV, healing at a cellular level, oxygenation of the blood, and antibiotic effects against bacteria. Please note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information. Germanium, as a white metal, is associated primarily with the crown chakra.
