What Is The Average Cost Of Germanium Per Gram/Pound/Ton? Average Germanium Price?

The average cost of germanium is $3 per gram. A chemical element with atomic number 32, germanium is a lustrous, hard, grayish-white metalloid in the carbon group, chemically similar to tin and silicon. It was discovered comparatively late because very few minerals contain it in high concentration. It is an important semiconductor material used in transistors and other electronic equipments. Its major end uses are fiber-optic systems and infrared optics. Germanium is mined primarily from sphalerite, though it is also recovered from silver, lead and copper ores. Some germanium compounds, such as germanium chloride and germane, can irritate the eyes, skin, lungs and throat.
