URANIUM ORE: Carnotite/Uraninite
RADIATION EMISSION: 5,000 CPM
WEIGHT: 930 grams
This spectacular Uranium ore sample is quite large - weighing over 930 grams and measuring 6" across. We had a similar sample that was a bit larger that sold fairly quickly. It is packed with large yellow/green radioactive crystals, some measuring over 1". Beautiful yellow Carnotite along with a spattering of black Uraninite is found all through this sample. A fantastic museum or collector display piece. Crystalline samples are quite rare and we don't see them very often. Uranium ore will measure up to 10 times higher on 'pancake' style radiation detectors. A perfect sample for display, classroom instruction or collectors.
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 'B' (3,500 - 5,000 CPM)
