you know that many antiques and collectables are radioactive?
There's a lot of it
about, including antique Fiestaware, Bagley glass, ceramics,
glassware, Waterford Crystal, old clocks, watches, compasses and
instruments with radium painted luminous dials.
You may also come
across Victorian ‘quack’ remedies and devices containing
radioactive materials, even items made of common minerals like
granite can be surprisingly ‘lively'.
