LOL yeah it is still a nice color
For the price i may order a couple more if they have any left

Colored Flourescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome, the modern 'white' ones are kinda boring...

Looks like they're made by Philips.

Manufactured August, 1992

Service Long Life Guaranteed was Radiant Lamp Co brand, which was owned by Philips until 2004.

It is currently owned by Westinghouse Lighting, a Westing House Electric licensee, which is a brand management company.

I got them from Daycoa in the closeout section ( daycoa.com/additional-closeouts.htm (its
listed as F40T12/HEARTHGLOW)), price was less than $5 each. They don't have many left...it
was tempting to buy 'em all (LOL) but i got just 4

I spoke to Dave when ordering

WOW!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the info! They have some interesting ones! Did you see the F20T12/VIBRANT? You should get that for your F20 collection!

I wonder if there are any of these left? I saw Daycoa still has the Hearthglow ones listed and also an HG which I'd think is also Hearthglow. Hmmm. I love the cool greens - now all I need are a Jadelite, a GE Green and a GE Lite-White....

The ones they have listed as HG are indeed Hearthglow (I asked LOL.. maybe a different brand, that i didn't ask). I think DieselNut got the last of the Jadelite they had mislabeled as Hearthglow (they haven't updated that section of their website...I know some of the stuff listed there is sold out)

GE Lite-White ? I've never seen one of those (except in a picture) would love to find one of those! and a Philips or Sylvania F40/Pink .. plus one of the new Industrial "Orange" F40's. I've also heard "peach" colored lamps existed (don't know who made 'em) but one of them would be awesome!!

I have seen some Lite Whites used long ago. I only found them listed in F34T12 watt-miser types...they have very poor CRI which makes them look like old DX mercury lamps. Have no idea where to get them now, but they are still in the GE catalog.

Orange and peach fluroescents...very interesting! Would love to see those.

Too bad Jadelites are sold out...they look like they might be a bit bluer than the cool green. If you ever want to trade one for a Service Long Life F20T12 Cool Green...

Orange and peach would be cool! I did get some HearthGlo lamps in place of what were supposed to be JadeLite. I sent one of those to kevxsi16v in our recent swap. Nothing too special to me about them, but I do like the JadeLite. Industrial has some cool lamp colors! We need to continue to support them so they will continue to make them!

I remember seeing a couple of those tubes in classrooms when I was in high school. Apparently, they recieved a sample from the lamp distributor, so there were about three classrooms that had one lamp of this colour and the rest (in the same room) remained cool white. These lamps have long since reached eol, were thrown in the trash, and the fixtures are not there anymore since that part of the building was demolished...

I imagine that a combination of peach and jade colours would produce an interesting effect provided you had enough to light an entire room ! Combined with light yellow and light blue, it would make an ice cream parlour stand out !

@arcblue the Jadelite is indeed just slightly more blue than a CG, I have a comparison image here .
I only got a few, but if i had gotten more i'd be willing to trade/sell

I Googled on the Lite White (4200k) today..looks like they are still available but like you saw just in crappy 34w energy saver LOL. CRI was low - something like 49.

----
I think 'Orange' is just a matter of time, from what i could tell Industrial just came out with those last year? maybe the year before? ... Peach on the other hand that would be a tough one. LOL that must be really rare/old I've never seen any info on them or what company even made 'em
