This sample underwent stabilization using Paraloid B-72, a frequently employed material in mineral preservation. It effectively ensures stability, rigidity, and long-term conservation, preventing the typical degradation seen in neglected autunite specimens, thereby preserving its integrity over time.

48.27% Uranium.

A small UV light source is included with each autunite shipment.
