Pulled this out of a day burning flood, it still worked well enough, but due to the state of the outer bulb, I decided to retire it!

Did you recover the niobium from the arc tube seals? Looks like one of those G.E. things with a wire at the base end and a resevior tube at the crown end. There were loads of these inside Cadbruy's Clairmont plant here in Hobart.

I think that this lamp is still useful. Super HPS lamps, retains their original color until EOL and never cycles at EOL but just dead silent.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

No, didn`t take the niobium, is this sought after by people???, just wondered why you asked?
dor, yes this still worked well, but put a definite `shadow` on the light output, I have seen these go black quite quickly after this stage.

Have you ever seen, touched or handled Niobium before?
If the answer is, "No" then it is probably quite a rare metal, (even if its compounds might be common, like Titanium, the reduction and subsequent smelting processes are difficult and exacting), so I believe we should value and recycle such things.
When you have enough, take it to the Chemistry Department of the nearest University.

@Dor i removed a Ge LUCALOX 50w XO dated March 2003 that cycles and is pink, i also have Philips PIA Plus Osram Super 4Y Sylvania SHP-TS and Venture Ho lamps im my collection that cycle. The only lamps that cycle and have stayed there normal Gold color is the Osram Super 4Y and venture HO all the others burn pink.

No, no, I`d thought I`d lost it to be able to give it to you! , got a memory like a fish......what?.....
My best EOL SON lamp is a 150watt GE elliptical, doesn`t run for long, without cycling, but goes through some amazing colours while it gets there!

At Kiryat Ata, we had a lot of Osram NAV-E 250W Super 4Y in the first decade of the 2000's. All of them retained their color until EOL, and all of them had non-cycling EOL. Also I've never seen a super HPS lamp in Haifa going pink like the regular SON lamps at EOL.
