Who has ever wanted to own your own radioactive material for "hobby" purposes.
If you have ever wondered how easy it is to get Uranium metal or ore, maybe even Plutonium Oxide (Metal if you know to refine it).
Search the internet.
Two sites which sells the items are:
www.ebay.com
www.unitednuclear.com

Also you are legally allowed to own these substances.

What's that stuff they used to put on the old glow in the dark clocks? I'm sure that's radioactive and I've heard these clock faces are quite collectable too.

The radioactive material once used to "paint" watch and clock faces was radium.
Radium was found to be extremely toxic to those who actually painted those clock and watch faces. Using paintbrushes, the workers would inadvertently absorb minute amounts of radium through their skin, lips and tongues. They would also inhale minute amounts of radium. Ingestion of radium was found to be extremely unhealthy, to say the least. The practice of using radium was finally discontinued in the 70's.


Many antiques actively exploit the radioactive properties of radionuclides:

* clocks, watches, and instrument dials that glow in the dark, may contain radium or tritium
* ceramics (specifically old Fiestaware®) get their color from the addition of various radionuclides to their glaze
* vaseline or canary glass contains small amounts of uranium, which provide it's yellow-green coloring and also makes it glow under black lights.

These items emit small amounts of radiation, but enough to register on a hand-held Geiger Counter.SOURCE

Now don't forget they used to paint plates and cups with uranium gloss.
The radioactive particles would come when hot food was put on the plates and could cause radiation poisoning.

Also to note in the 1970s they used uranium oxide to color glass green.
Cool.
