Germanium is extracted from germanium bearing zinc ores or from certain coal ores, collecting the flue dusts after the burning process. It can occasionally be found in copper ores. We refine germanium at our facility in the USA.
In addition to refined germanium, Indium Corporation sells germanium compounds, such as germanium tetrachloride and germanium oxide. Please contact us for more information about germanium metals and compounds.
