The lamp arctube is very blackened and if it is a phosphored mercury lamp, so the phosphor was degraded.
Also: Most digital camera sees mercury lamps greener than they are in reality.

With clear lamps, a browned/yellowed refractor or bowl can make the lamp look greenish. The blue of the clear MV light mixes with the yellowish tones of the plastic, making a sickly lime green light that is really cool to see. I've done set-ups like that in my back yard. The CRI is next to nothing too LOL. Everyone looks like Shrek the Ogre.
