I got to get me one of those kits for my collection.

Trying to kill somebody with Torbernite. The only people getting rich from that idea is the insurance company. Because you're going to be waiting a long long long time for that payout :)

Ekanite set in Platinum, a radioactive gemstone set in a radioactive metal.
Though the half lives of each are a big long to present any sort of hazard. :)

Yes, I am an agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.

I've got a few of those in my collection too. Hot rocks such as Davidite, Torbernite and Thorian Brannerite. Then there are mercury and arsenic minerals. I've got crocidolite asbestos as well as actinolite and tremolite. But being from Broken Hill, the huge amount of lead I've got includes two shelves of cerussite, lots of galena, big pyromorphite samples and a couple of native lead samples. As I grew up in Broken Hill, I've already got lead in the blood... the "toxic" samples never worry me as they are all looked after appropriately and care is taken when they are handled.
 
Cheers, from my little piece of the Australian Outback...
