Uranium Metal chemical element: U
High Purity Uranium238 metal chunks. Uranium is a chemical element; atomic number 92. Ideal for element collectors or those conducting experiments with genuine Uranium metal. Uranium is a very hard, radioactive metal... and at 19050 kg/m³, it is 70% more dense than Lead. At least 3 grams of pure Uranium metal are included. Pieces vary in size and shape, but you'll always get at least 3 grams. Examples of 3 gram piles of Uranium samples are shown in the image above. The Uranium is sealed in a vacuum pouch under low pressure Argon gas to prevent any additional oxidation or discoloration of the metal. The half-life of Uranium238 is 4.5 billion years.
Caution: Use normal safety precautions (wear a filter mask/respirator and gloves) when working with Uranium metal. Accidental inhalation or ingestion of Uranium particles can be dangerous. Machining will produce particles that can spontaneously ignite producing radioactive smoke.
