      Autunite is one of the most brilliant fluorescent minerals and is very desirable to collectors. These pictures 

      were taken using a long wave ultraviolet light but Autunite will glow as well under short wave uv. 

      Not only is it Fluorescent but it is also Radioactive. The radiation measurements for these specimens were taken

      using a standard CDV700 with the standard "hot dog" probe and were taken at the surface of the specimen.
     All the Autunite shown on the following pages came from our mine in North East Washington State. The 

     specimens were mined by hand. Unless otherwise noted, all specimens consist of Autunite on matrix of Granite

     Pegmatite which also may contain  Mica, Garnet and Beryl.  Please review the "  Regulations  " section for our

    guarantee, shipping information, compliance and  requirements to purchase certain specimens. 
  We do not enhance our photos.
