Germanium is a grey-white metalloid, and in its pure state is crystalline and brittle, retaining its lustre in air at room temperature. It is a very important semiconductor material. Zone-refining techniques have led to production of crystalline germanium for semiconductor use with an impurity of only one part in 10 -10 .

Certain germanium compounds have a clear activity against certain bacteria, which makes them of interest as chemotherapeutic agents.
