star this property definition Germanium is a chemical element with symbol Ge and atomic number 32. It is a lustrous, hard, grayish-white metalloid in the carbon group, chemically similar to its group neighbors tin and silicon.

Unlike silicon, it is too reactive to be found naturally on Earth in the free (native) state. more like this
