Description: Galena is the sulphide of lead and is used for lead manufacture. Should be packed in drums. It is soft, powders readily, and is very dense and heavy. When very soft it can oxidize and a toxic sulphur dioxide gas can be given off. When such oxidation takes place, the amount of lead is unaffected, but it has to be refined in a different manner. Water flowing over galena does not affect it. See also IMDG Code & US CFR.
