Wow these are gorgeous! I browsed the website of Betalight but couldn't find prices - could you give me an indication?|

I tried to get the prices, but they apparently don't sell them to the US for the purpose that I wanted to use them for due to NRC regulations. Here's my email:
I am designing a sterling silver jewelry line that will incorporate Betalights in various ways.
I'd like to receive ordering information about your raw light sources as shown here, http://www.betalight.com/index_product.htm.
A price list with minimum order details would be great. Thanks!
All the best,
And their response:
Tritium light sources are highly regulated in the US and their use is limited, outside of military or law enforcement, to fixed location use for emergency egress markings. Many countries in Europe allow for the use in many consumer products but unfortunately in the US the only consumer approved, non-emergency applications are for watches and compasses.

He didn't give any further details. Perhaps, being that you are in Holland you'll be able to get them from Betalight and use them without restriction.
