Gallicite deposits, KirShara
Gallicite deposits and their electrical discharges

Gallicite was a naturally-occurring, though rare, mineral. When the mineral was located, it was usually found in deposits large enough to be mined extensively. The deposits could produce strong electrical currents when metal objects were held nearby.

There were gallicite deposits in Vulcan's Forge on Vulcan. T'Pau warned Captain Jonathan Archer about these discharges, demonstrating the electrical discharges by throwing a knife into a gallicite-rich area. (ENT: "Kir'Shara")

Gallicite could be used to refit a starship's warp coils. About a kiloton of gallicite was enough to refit the coils of an Template:ShipClass ship. The USS Voyager found gallicite deposits on a seemingly uninhabited Delta Quadrant planet in 2373. However, the mineral was found in conduits used by the native Sakari, living underground, who relied on the deposits to shield their life signs from the Borg. (VOY: "Blood Fever")

The Nezu operated gallicite mines. (VOY: "Rise")
