Caption: Autunite. This radioactive uranium-bearing phosphate mineral has tabular crystals that are highly fluorescent. Autunite is formed as a secondary mineral by oxidation of primary uranium minerals in hydrothermal veins in or near granitic pegmatites. It is used, on a modest scale, as an ore of uranium. This sample is from Schneeberg, Saxony, Germany, and measures 45 mm wide.
