URANINITE - 35,000 cpm - sample #601

Sold Out


URANIUM ORE: Uraninite
RADIATION EMISSION: 35,000 CPM
WEIGHT: 24 grams
SIZE: 1.25"

This is a high level Uraninite sample measuring 35,000 CPM - almost making it into the Super High category. It rare - as it is solid, pure black Uraninite with no inert rock at all. Uraninite is a primary Uranium ore, somewhat crystalline in nature. When it is bulbous (looking like small round bumps) it is known as Pitchblende. It is a smaller size sample under 2", bit it is certainly a powerful radiation emitter. Great for classroom instruction, collectors, or as a very stout radiation source for experiments. High grade ore of this type is extremely rare and will measure up to 10 times higher on 'pancake' style radiation detectors.
From Clear Creek County, Colorado.
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 'M' (33,500 - 36,000 CPM)
