Of course I had to make some photos of these lit up. They are particularly special when lit up, once the arc tube (which is the same size as a conventional 125w mercury lamp I believe) has fully warmed up, objects start to fluoresce, particularly white objects as they appear blue. These lamps are quite heavy and get very, very hot (hence the special setup with a porcelain lampholder in the photo as a standard lampholder would probably get burnt) due to their special Woods glass.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.
