Probably not…from what little I understand it’s fine, but a second opinion from someone amongst the Teeming Millions who’s knowledgeable about such things could set my mind at rest.
A pal bought me a bunch of radioactive marbles that have a trace of uranium in 'em (because they fluoresce like green Kryptonite does and I collect fluroescent minerals).
But the level of “It’s RADIATION! WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!” in our society has apparently worked on me too and I’d like some reassurance that I’m not gonna wake up glowing green or something (the fact that my sister-in-law just died of cancer isn’t helping either).
Anyway, apparently these things “will register on a CDV-700 Geiger Counter though with low reading. Depending on what type of counter and probe you have they should register right around 100 CPM or .2mR approximately.” (and I’ve got either 10 or 12 of 'em), which, best as I can figure, isn’t as dangerous as the fact that I live in the Rocky Mountains which, having granite in 'em are mildly radioactive too. Besides, they were able to be shipped through the mail, and presumably the post office would have a hissy fit if someone tried to mail radioactive waste, right?
So…reassure me. No big deal, or is it time to get the lead foil and call the hazmat teams?
