Where does Strontium occur on Earth?

Strontium frequently happens in nature, as the 15th most abundant element on Earth. Strontium is estimated to average approximately 360 parts per million in the Earth’s crust. Strontium is found chiefly as the form of sulfate mineral celestite(SrSO4) and the carbonite strontianite(SrCO3).

How long does Strontium last?

These are the top 5 half-lives of (unstable) isotopes. The rest are here.
82Sr has a half-life of 25.36 days. 83Sr has a half-life of 1.35 days. 85Sr has a half-life of 64.84 days. 89Sr has a half life of 50.52 days. 90Sr has a half-life of 28.90 years.

What is Strontium named after?

What is Stronium used for(or used in)?


The CRT computer monitor front
panel is made from strontium
and barium oxide-containing glass.

89Sr is the active ingredient in Metastron(the generic version), a radiopharmaceutical that is used for bone pain secondary to metastatic bone cancer. 90Sr has been used as a power source for radioisotope thermoelectric generators(or RTGs). 90Sr is also used in cancer therapy. Strontium carbonate or other strontium salts are used in the manufacture of fireworks, as they impart a deep red color to the firework. Strontium chloride is sometimes used in toothpastes for sensitive teeth. Small amounts of strontium chloride are used in the refining of zinc, to remove small amounts of lead impurities.

How many protons does Strontium have?

Strontium has 38 protons.

How many neutrons does Strontium have?

It has around 50 neutrons(depends on the isotope).
