Polonium is element 84 on the Periodic Table. It is so toxic and radioactive that exposure to very small amounts can be fatal.
Its high radioactivity makes it useful in anti-static brushes, where a layer of bismuth is slipped inside two thin layers silver and gold foil. A laser is shot through the foil and transmutes the bismuth into polonium.

Polonium was named after the country of Poland after being discovered by Marie Curie.
