System:IsometricColour:Red, Red-brown, ...
Lustre:Adamantine, ResinousHardness:4 - 5
Name:The name reflects its uranium content and similarity to pyrochlore.


Pyrochlore Group. Pyrochlore Subgroup. The uranium analogue of the other members of the Pyrochlore Subgroup.
Uranpyrochlore was discredited by Atencio et al. (2010). The samples named as uranpyrochlore in previous litterature are not fullfilling the conditions according to the new nomenclature of the pyrochlore supergroup to be name as a uranpyrochlore
