Uraninite

Uraninite is a radioactive, uranium-rich mineral and ore with a chemical composition that is largely UO2, but also contains UO3 and oxides of lead, thorium, and rare earth elements.

CharacteristicsEdit

It is most commonly known as pitchblende from pitch, because of its black color, and blende, a term used by German miners to denote minerals whose density suggested metal content.
