Common Name: autunite
Mineral: calcium uranyl phosphate

This listing is for three sealed glass vials containing one gram of autunite flakes each. A UV light source is included with this order. The three vials are shipped in a single black tin-plated steel box to protect the vials from crushing and to bring the parcel surface activity below the 0.5mR/hr shipping limit. (the unshielded specimen itself has an activity above 70 Bq/gram)

Autunite contains 48.27% uranium. These specimens glow bright green in the presence of UV light due to the presence of phosphorus. When a sealed specimen is placed within 1/4 inch of the Geiger tube, a count of 1000CPM can be expected. The size of each vial is 37.5mm tall by 15.4mm in maximum diameter. Each vial has been sealed closed using epoxy for safety purposes. Attempting to open the vial is not recommended.
