re: radiation levels, was just checking out some of my glass and comparing the meerkats so to speak.
background radiation in my lounge is 11 mcR/h. the bubbly piece in question measured 16 so only a slight increase but a sowerby water glass patt no. 2481 registered 56 and a jobling jade candlestick from the 12500 dts was 163

Christine, will add a few pics, either here if Paul doesnt object to me hijacking his thread or on the main board?
