CARNOTITE/GUMMITE - 15,000cpm - sample #0409


URANIUM ORE: Carnotite/Gummite
WEIGHT: 143 grams
SIZE: 3.5"

This sample features maroon Gummite with streaks of yellow Carnotite throughout. Although not mentioned, there is clearly some small areas of Black Uraninite visible too. A stout radiation emitter at 15,000 CPM. Aside from mineral collections, it is well suited for geology instruction & classroom use - as well as a source for Uranium extraction experiments.
Ore samples will measure up to 10 times higher on 'pancake' style radiation detectors. A perfect sample for display, collectors, or for use as a stout radiation source for experiments. From Poison Canyon, north of Grants, NM.
Please Note - all our Uranium Ore Samples are unique - that is, there is only one of each. As soon as it it sold, it is gone - and we have no guarantee that we will be able to restock a similar mineral sample.

As with all our Uranium ore samples, a certificate stating your sample's precise radiation measurement & associated information is included with your purchase. Click Here for more info.
Like all radioactive samples sold by United Nuclear, the radiation levels measured are combined Beta and Gamma radiation only. We never include Alpha radiation measurements or use 'pancake'/end window/scintillator type probes
as they produce a deceivingly high reading.

Radiation Level 'F' (12,500 - 15,000 CPM)
