Awesome! What all do you have left to collect? What is in your polonium vial?



static brush from static master..

the strip has a pretty god Po210 source in it..


Wow I had no idea they made anti static brushes with radioactive elements. It just seems like a waste for something so expensive and rare in a sense.

Here are a few pictures of my Periodic Table.

I finally got my EPP licemce from the Home Office (UK).





Periodic Table.jpg - 1.2MB Group 11.jpg - 1MB

I normally have it covered with a perspex sheet.

The Silver coin is a 2014 UK quarter ounce siver coin struck from the silver recovered from the SS Gairsoppa. Got it from the Royal Mint. You get a really interesting booklet and DVD about the salvage operation.
The wreck is at 4 700 m (The Titanic is at 3 700 m).


The gold bar is a 5 g 999.9 fine gold bar, also from The Royal Mint in Wales.

Looks great! Nice work.

I'm curious what you have for your radioactive samples: Po, At, Rn, Fr, Ra, Ac, Pa, Np, and particularly Pu?

That is a gorgeous display and an even more gorgeous collection. Well done.

What did you use for F?

I need to replace some of the reactive metals in oil as they are badly corroded.


Po is from an antistatic brush.

At, Fr and Pa are from pitchblend.

Rn is from some thorium nitrite.

Ra is a luminouse watch hand.

The F sample is a 33% F sample in nitrogen. Prabbably escaped by now. Given to me as a Christmas pressent from a good friend.

And finally the Pu is a sample of Trinitite.

Here is my effort at a periodic table with a few notes.

1. I deliberately stopped at Bismuth as radioactives are impossible to get in elemental form in the UK.

2. There are some gaps. I am trying to find a supplier of small amounts of rubidium (0.5 to 1 gram) as the current ebay offerings of 20mg are too small.

3. There are more gaps around the noble metals (Osmium etc as they are very expensive)

4. For the Noble gases I have used a photo of the gas discharge glow for each.

5. For Fluorine I use a Fluorite crystal which can be illuminated with UV as I'm never going to get hold of visible amounts of fluorine.

6. The other colourless gases ??.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

I do not have as nice a display as some of these, but for F, I do have a sample of antozonite, which contains small amounts of elemental F. It does not look as interesting as the usual fluorite crystals, but I still like it.

Me too! A commenter on one of my videos mentioned it, and after searching around eBay for a long while I finally found a sample. I was very excited to learn about a way to have elemental fluorine for my collection!
