A sample of Uranium ore conglomerate from Ontario Canada.  This image was created by placing the slice of radioactive conglomerate on a sheet of sensitive x-ray film for four days.  The brightest spots represent the highest sources of radiation.  False color was applied to the black and white image. The radiation is gamma, beta, and gamma..Uranium ore is also called pitchblende.  Pitchblende is a form of the uranium ore (uranium oxide).  This highly radioactive black ore is made up of uranium (U) and oxygen (O) in the chemical formula U3O8. As an uranium source it is important for the nuclear industry. .This is part of a series.  The other images in the series show the rock sample in optical light.
