Radium is found naturally in uranium ores. It is an alkaline earth metal that decomposes in water and it is over a million times more radioactive than the same mass of uranium. As a radiological hazard that emits alpha, beta, and gamma rays, it is a carcinogen.

Every day, wherever we go, we are exposed to minute amounts of environmental radiation.* This environmental radiation is emitted continuously, day and night, from various objects and substances in the natural world and our living environment.
Most environmental radiation consists of three types: alpha rays (α), beta rays (β) and gamma rays (γ). HORIBA`s PA-1000 `Radi` environmental radiation monitor makes it easy for non-specialists to measure even minute levels of gamma rays.
* Environmental radiation, also known as natural radiation, includes radiation emitted from space, soil, stones, the ground and the air, as well as from manmade objects such as concrete and buildings
