He describes "a stratum of galenite carrying a wonderfully rich percentage of silver [with] zincblende and striking ores of copper." Only one galena specimen was examined during this study--Yale #60-C1644-734.
To realize the Pockels effect, the group IV material must be grown with an ordered, noncentrosymmetric lattice, such as zincblende. This may require special growth techniques to stabilize the lattice and prevent randomization of atomic order.
