This is a large, glowing gem, approximately eight inches long. The glow is sufficiently bright to dimly illuminate a 5-foot radius around itself. Unfortunately, it is also quite radioactive. Every hour of close exposure (5 feet) to the gem causes 1 point of Radiation damage per 10 gp in its value. Plant matter can ignore up to 2 points of damage per hour, fired clay can ignore up to 5 points of damage per hour, and extradimensional spaces can ignore up to caster level squared points of damage per hour.
Despite being insanely dangerous to be near, Radioactive Gems are a popular currency, easily surpassing gold due to their more portable nature.
Radioactive Gems are frequently found in Tall Grass.
Price 10 gp (green), 50 (blue), 100 (yellow), 200 (red), 500 (purple), 1000 (orange), Weight ¼ lb.
