THE SYNTHETIC ELEMENT OF THE THERMONUCLEAR BOMB

THE SYNTHETIC ELEMENT OF THE THERMONUCLEAR BOMB


IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WHAT MINERAL IS USED TO CREATE AN ATOMIC BOMB, IT IS 5% OF 235U TO 95% U238 OXIDE, UO2.  THIS IS TECHNICALLY NOT A MINERAL BECAUSE IT IS SYNTHESIZED BY HUMANS FROM URANITITE, U3O8, THE NATURAL ORE.  THESE ORES ARE HARVESTED FROM MINES IN THE MID USA, SUCH AS IN UTAH.  THIS IS ONE EXAMPLE OF HOW AN ORE IS HARVESTED TO MAKE A SYNTHETIC MINERAL (WHICH IS, THUS, NOT A MINERAL).  I WILL NOT DISCUSS HOW TO SYNTHESIS IT.

OTHER ORES ARE USED FOR OTHER PURPOSES.  FOR EXAMPLE, BAUXITE IS THE ORE OF ALUMINUM, USED TO MAKE ALUMINUM FOIL.

ZINCITE IS A RED ORE USED TO ISOLATE ZINC, AS USED IN A MULTIVITAMIN.

ORES ARE COLLECTED IN MINES AND QUARRIES.  THESE MINES AND QUARIES MAKE GREAT PLACES FOR THE ROCK COLLECTOR.

QUESTION?: IS H2O (WATER) AN ORE OF OXYGEN.  THE ANSWER IS NO BECAUSE ALL MINERALS ARE NOT LIQUID AT STD.

GOLD ORES ARE SLATE, LIMESTONE AND QUARTZ.  SO, GOLD IS NOT ALWAYS FOUND AS INDEPENDENT GOLD NUGGETS.

FLUORESCENT SPECIMENS

FLUORESCENT SPECIMENS

Fluorescence



Fluorescent Specimens and Ultraviolet Lamps

Saturday, November 28, 2015

HOW TO OBSERVE FLUORESCENCE IN FLUORESCENT ROCKS AND MINERALS

DO NOT STAIR INTO A GERMICIDAL LAMP.  STARING INTO A 255 nm LAMP FOR MORE THAN A HALF MINUTE WILL CAUSE, AT LEAST, SEVERE PAIN AND INFECTION, AND WILL CAUSE BLINDNESS FOR GREATER LENGTHS OF TIME
I learned the hard way; never do it!

There are three types of ultraviolet lamps that are necessary for observing the fluorescence of a specimen.  They are a follows:

  • A 365 nm electromagnetic frequency lncandscent lamp.
  • A fluorescent type of fluorescent lamp with a frequency less than 365 nm, but not as short as 255 nm
  • A germicidal lamp with a frequency of 255 nm
A incandescent lamp will become very hot.  Do not handle it until it cools off.

Fluorescent rocks and minerals will fluoresce at one of these frequencies.  So, try all three.




Good luck!

HANDLING RADIOACTIVE SPECIMENS

I will have you fill out a form stating that you have read the OSHA and MSDS sheets on the nuclear material.

When enjoying your specimens:

  • Keep them in your collection farther than a minimum of 30 cm to 3 m from you at all times.
  • Handle your specimens occasionally.
  • Do not keep the rock in your pocket, as jewelry, next to your body on a piece of furniture  or on your body for more than 3 minutes.  The radiation of my specimens are no more dangerous than a suntan if handled properly.
  • Read the MSDS sheet and the OSHA compliance sheets.
  • Enjoy your specimen with a Geiger counter of scillentation counter.
