Normally we strive to sell only pure elements but we make exceptions where it concerns radioactive ones. And in the case of thorium at least it has much more to do with practical reasons than with safety. While radioactive, thorium's atoms are relatively stable and thus decay very slowly. Want to wait around for a piece of thorium to whittle away to half its size because of radioactivity? That would be a 14,000,000,000 year long wait. By then the solar system will be long gone.

Anyway, we said practical reasons are what motivated us to get impure thorium. As in it's otherwise practically impossible to get thorium. You'll have to make do with this little bit of it; a paltry 2% concentration mixed in with a 98% tungsten remainder. But hey, that still amounts to something. You can easily imagine this rod being divided into 100 equal parts and two of them would be pure thorium :-)
