Boltwoodit

Hello,
I got a small piece of mineral from namibia. It is Boltwoodit which is slightly radioactive. The fine yellow needles are easily recognizable. The spectrum shows very nicely the products of the decay series of uranium.

Nice one Peter.
Just how radioactive it is?
I don't have Boltwoodite in my collection (I guess I cab call it that) so I am curious.
