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 20% or multiply by 0.8.
