Uranium ore samples international shipping


I'm interested in getting some uranium ore samples from eBay for a collection, the seller(radioactiveitems) is from Australia and ships world wide(except for China and Italy).
But I'm not sure if it's legal to ship the stuff. Most of his samples are small a few centimeters at most. I live in south east Asia.
So is it risky to buy in terms of legality?

Here is his page with the stuff he sells:https://www.ebay.com/usr/radioactiveitems?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

I don't know your jurisdiction, so little too none can be said.

Oddly, it is difficult to ship anything radioactve into Aus. Never mind that the country is riddled with the stuff (and currently supplies a third of the world's uranium). I have no idea about shipping out of the country.

But I am pleased ypu gave the link. I might be able to get some interesting thOKngs from someone local.

It may depend on local laws. If your country's law isn't that strict then you could try ship it into yours, but I don't guarantee it will work.

Would this ore set off a gamma detector? Alpha and beta shouldn't leave the box, I don't think uranium ore is a strong gamma emitter.

The naturally occuring uranium isotopes (235 and 238) are alpha emitters, but -ore- will contain all of the daughters in the uranium series, many of which decay with energetic gamma emissions.

A way to get U(238)


You must study the minerology on the area of the country which you occupy. Go there and search using radiation detector and collect. This is what I was thinking to do since the shop in our capital city does not sell U(238).
