Interesting shaped CFL given to me by my cousin

Interesting shaped CFL given to me by my cousin

As I haven't been finding too many lamps these last couple of days and haven't yet gotten access to my collection (here in Spain), I am uploading some photos of this CFL with particularly interesting shaped tubes that my cousin found in his house in a drawer. It looks like it has been used, he had a vague memory of it going there when their house changed to LED (already at least 5 years ago). Apart from the tubes, the lamp itself is nothing special and was probably purchased from one of the multiple "Chinese Bazaars" (dollar stores) local to the area some years ago.

Very nice blackening! I guess it is a triphosphor lamp? Would be cool if it is halophosphate

I would imagine so! I also wondered if the inner and outer tubes run off of different ballasts? As the blackening and brightness levels appear different in this photo.
