Yes, there's trinitite from the atomic bomb detonation in New Mexico, but has chernobylite from the 1986 nuclear reactor meltdown ever made it to the market?

there is a material called corium found in the Chernobyl site, basement, probably the type locality. But I guess you do not really want to have that in your collection.

Corium is not a mineral it is a mixture of molten fuel and construction materials (steel and zirconium).
