Like Hot Rocks? Autunite from the Daybreak Mine, Spokane, WA

This is about as hot as I want to get - check the meter: 3,600CPM. Autunite is equally fluorescent under all wavelengths (shortwave shown) and is very bright. This pic was taken at iso100, f8, 1/5 sec. Great little specimen from a classic locality.
