Minerals

Thorium and Uranium elements

High purity Thorium (Th232) and Uranium (U238) elements. With my Inspector Alert, I measure, at the surface of the glasses (β + γ):
Thorium Powder 5 gr. Ampoule ≅ 49.22 μSv/h
Thorium 0,05 gr. Ampoule ≅ 3.20 μSv/h
Uranium Powder 0,5 gr. In Ampoule ≅ 40.50 μSv/h
Uranium 1,8 gr. Ampoule ≅ 19.84 μSv/h
Trinitite samples

Early in the morning on July 16, 1945, the first atomic bomb blast was detonated at the Trinity Site. The actual explosion produced a blast equivalent to eighteen thousand tons of TNT. The resulting fireball that scorched the desert formed a depressed crater 800 yards in diameter, glazed with a light olive green, glass-like substance where the sand had melted and solidified again. The following excerpt is from Time Magazine, Sept. 17, 1945: “Seen from the air, the crater itself seems (looks like) a lake of green Jade shaped like a splashy star, and set in a sere disc of burnt vegetation half a mile wide. From close up the lake is a glistening encrustation of blue-green glass 2,400 feet in diameter, formed when the molten soil solidified in air.” Chemical tests have confirmed that it is nearly pure melted silica with traces of Olivine, Feldspar, and other minerals which comprise the desert sand. The crater was buried for security reasons not long after the explosion and, as a result, Trinitite has remained relatively difficult to obtain.

Autunite Crystals

Daybreak Mine, Spokane, Washington, USA
Ca(UO2)2(PO4)2•12(H2O)
Autunite Fluorescent Natural Mineral Sample, with no substrate. The crystalline form of Autunite is Fluorescent under Long Wave and Short Wave Ultra Violet Light. Some of the Brightest Fluorescence seen in Nature.
With my Inspector Alert, I measure, at the surface of the bottle (β+γ) ≅ 960.0 μSv/h
Uraninite / Pitchblende

Schwartzwalder Mine, Jefferson County, Colorado, USA
UO2
Pitchblende/Uraninite Uranium Oxide Mineral Ore. The density of this sample is very high, confirming it’s purity.
With my Inspector Alert, I measure, at the surface of the bottle (β+γ) ≅ 438.6 μSv/h
Uraninite / Pitchblende

Markey Mine – San Juan County Utah, USA
UO2
Pitchblende/Uraninite Uranium Oxide Mineral Ore.
With my Inspector Alert, I measure, at 3 cm from the surface of the mineral (α+β+γ) ≅ 1000.0 μSv/h
