Sadly, this tube is NOS, but it's internal cathode is broken. I tried to hook it up on MOT transformer, but all I got was a little flicker of purple light and that's it. (Don't worry, I did on a variac to not burn out the tube, but the cathode was already broken, I checked it with multimeter before I tried it.

It's NOT a mercury rectifier tube, it's a vacuum triode for high voltage stabilizer.

Thank you for telling me the true information about this tube!

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;
