- 50% Uranium sample (by mass)

Uranium is a chemical element with the symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-grey metal in the actinide series of the periodic table. It is one of the key components to nuclear energy.
This sample of Uranium is a beautiful green form called Autunite. It is 50% uranium by mass and is a naturally forming crystal of Uranium. It is not regulated by international shipping laws because it is a natural crystal specimen. It is slightly radioactive but the acrylic shields most of the Alpha and Beta particles. Autunite is becoming increasingly hard to collect. This sample will glow under a black light.
Have always found this element fascinating. The acrylic cube is extremely well made and the clarity is great. No bubbles anywhere!
Very nice present, which is on the expensive side, but unique and cool nonetheless. It came in perfect condition and was delivered quickly.
Absolutely lived up to the expectations, will use again !
