    Possible Uranium Find? *URGENT HELP*

    The Quartz zoomed in with no idea in what the yellow stuff is.

    I have no other way of identifying these rocks, I know it's in quartz and my first thought was Lithium/Spodumene, however I'm absolutely clueless with identifying rocks and the thought of it being uranium spooked me. If anyone has any idea I would super appreciate it, Thanks People!

    I'll link my other thread as it contains the picture of the hole rock where these where mined from, perhaps it will help give you an idea on the identification.

    Thanks again

    Where did you find it and where are you located so that we can get an idea of the geology in your area.

    Cheers and welcome to the forum

    Does it react to a metal detector ?
    Kinda looks like Gold.
    Does a magnet stick to it ?

    Its not uranium or any ore of it. Here is a link on localities and it has links to uranium ores with pictures. https://www.mindat.org/min-52520.html
    What you have there looks like quartz with magnetite or pyrite. Not dangerous and quite common in West Australia.
    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.
