More details

Description of Germanium Metal

Germanium is a lustrous, grayish-white metalloid member of the carbon group of elements, carrying similar physical properties to tin and silicon. Germanium is easy to react and form complexes with oxygen in nature and it is too reactive to be found naturally on Earth in the native state. Ultra-high purity material is usually obtained by zone refining. Purified Germanium is a semiconductor material.
