I just scored a quantity (a couple pounds, I think) of "black uranium oxide". It really is black. This stuff doesn't look at all like the vials of yellow stuff I've purchased on eBay in gram form. I'm wondering about the difference. Rifling through Google, I'm looking for one, but I'm not getting every far. So I'm wondering - does anybody know what BLACK uranium oxide is, and why it's different from the yellow stuff?

In case you're wondering, this is NOT Ashcroft-related, not in my opinion, anyhow. (If they come for me, tho, there's really no arguing...) This is strictly for toning. But the black stuff may be for ceramic glazes. It seems to have a melting point just this side of what they detonated over Nevada in 1944.
