Uranium/Radioactive Minerals

There are a number of minerals that have radioactive elements such as uranium and thorium in them. Here are some excellent examples. Postage will be higher (CAD$30 or US$22.50) for these since I need to use bigger boxes and more material than usual. In North America, I will send them by surface mail. The risk associated with sending these specimens is the purchasers. There may be some countries to which I cannot send these radioactive specimens. Rules are constantly changing these days!

All prices in Canadian dollars. For payment in US$, deduct 22% or multiply by 0.78.

  • I've labeled this specimen carnotite in sandstone matrix but am not totally sure that it is. It is simply labeled "uranium ore" and consists of very yellow uranium oxides in a light beige sediment. Nice ore sample!

  • The front of this limestone matrix is an exposed vein of calcite crystals associated with yellow uranocircite and a pseudocubic mineral, possibly a phosphate or zeolite. Sorry don't know which one. Well formed crystals though! The uranocircite is mostly a white powder with just a hint of crystal structure.
