I'm certainly no radiologist or chemist or anything with a degree :p So maybe someone else can help.. It may not be radioactive materials but just materials that aren't good when in constant contact with human or any skin, which can toxify the blood.

true, and im no chemist yet D:

Don't meteorites have a surprising amount of radiation?

amazing. continuing the topic of material composition, did he address the topic of oxidation? being that it is a ring, and a wedding band, resistance to corrosion should be of concern, an issue that silver, gold, platinum etc... have no issues with.

He did. I might have the elements wrong, but he said something about making sure to get one with a "high amount of nickle" or "iron", so that it would make it less likely to rust. He also said that the other elements he melted into it are supposed to help stop it as well.
