Amazingly bright specimen full of vibraint yellow, acicular sprays of Studtite (red arrow) with beautiful, striated prismatic crystals of Becquerelite (3mm)  and tabular orange Masuyite with squared and pointed terminations to 2mm. Also in association is tan needles of Rutherfordine. Overall the bright orange is Curite and the matrix is Uraninite. 

This is an ex-Willaim Pinch specimen who passed it on to Don Cooke. Pinch helped me identifiy the various minerals.

For domestic shipping only and I would prefer to deliver it to Tucson, duing the show. Obviously it is very hot.

Radioactive!!
