    Vaseline glass. The most typical color of uranium glass is pale yellowish-green, which in the s led to the nickname Vaseline glass based on a perceived resemblance to the appearance (which was a yellow-green color) of Vaseline brand petroleum jelly as formulated and commercially sold at that time. Specialized collectors still define Vaseline glass as transparent or semi-transparent uranium.

    Introduction to Radioactive Minerals. by. Robert Lauf, Ph.D. Collectors have long admired uranium and thorium minerals for their brilliant colors, intense ultraviolet fluorescence, and rich variety of habits and associates. Radioactive minerals are also critically important as our source of nuclear energy. Fluorescence is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic is a form of most cases, the emitted light has a longer wavelength, and therefore lower energy, than the absorbed most striking example of fluorescence occurs when the absorbed radiation is in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum, and thus invisible.

NEW TITLE. “COLLECTING FLUORESCENT MINERALS”, By Stuart Schneider, pages, 8 1/2” X 11”, with color photos on high quality glossy paper, pictorial soft cover. Since collecting fluorescent minerals is a visual experience, the author has dedicated an enormous amount of time to preparing the color photographs in the book.

This is a fascinating book about the history of uranium. Primarily, it is about the mining of uranium, and secondarily about its use in bombs and in nuclear power plants, and the security (or lack of it) surrounding the mineral.

The author has a very engaging style, that keeps one interested all the way through the book/5. Uraninite is the most important radioactive mineral, and was once thought to be worthless. When the discovery of its useful uranium content was unveiled, it became extremely significant.

It is the most common and widespread uranium mineral, making it the best known uranium collectors refrain from collecting uranium minerals such as Uraninite because of their hazards and fragility.

Fluorescent Minerals, Mont Saint-Hilaire I've added some unique fluorescent minerals from the amazing Mont Saint-Hilaire locality to this website.

The primary uranium ore mineral is uraninite (UO 2) (previously known as pitchblende).A range of other uranium minerals can be found in various deposits. These include carnotite, tyuyamunite, torbernite and autunite.

The davidite-brannerite-absite type uranium titanates, and the euxenite-fergusonite-samarskite group are other uranium minerals. A large variety of secondary uranium minerals are. Two excellent introductory books about fluorescent minerals are: Collecting Fluorescent Minerals and The World of Fluorescent Minerals, both by Stuart Schneider.

These books are written in easy-to-understand language, and each of them has a fantastic collection of color photographs showing fluorescent minerals under normal light and different wavelengths of ultraviolet light. This book is an invaluable guide for mineral collectors, particularly those specializing in collecting fluorescent minerals.

With the resurgence of interest in nuclear power, the book will also provide valuable information for nuclear scientists and engineers interested in radioactive deposits. Books.
