Hello good people. I have these piece of precious stone. It looks like metal but can see it's not processed in anyway. It also heavy and contains little glitz with a golden colour. See pictures below!

It looks like Galena to me, but I don't have a lot of experience with metallic minerals.

Very likely not natural. Doesn't have the look of a natural mineral.
