Finding highly radioactive rocks on your property...

Picking up and playing with unusual rocks along the mountain trails has always been part of the fun growing up here in central Pennsylvania. This one rock in particular (which we've found many of in our woods throughout the years) is important to know why you shouldn't crush it to watch the coal-like dust clouds disperse from it.

Play safe! Don't let your kids bring home uranium. #Radioactive #Uranium #Pitchblende
