Francium Today
Where can it be found?
Francium is the second most rare element within the Earth's crust. It's said that only 30 grams of Francium is on Earth exists on Earth. It can also be made in a lab synthetically. Therefore, you'll probably be able to find it in a science laboratory.

How can we use it?
Well, due to it's rarity and how radioactive Francium is, there is really no use for it as of now. So it's only used for scientific research.
