I note that Ted De Castro was asking about radioactive lamp mantles,
which are now virtually unobtainable.
I also use them as check sources - but note, do NOT keep them with any
alpha detectors 'cos the plateout of thoron daughters will give your
instruments a (temporary) huge background count problem.
Question: is there a potential market for small vials or bottles of
monazite sand as check sources??
