Yes it does.

Linear fluorescent will never lose to LED!
I am not Anti-LED, as I have some in use at my house.

But why? Could we use glass as a phosphor?

Such an odd effect. Why do I never see this when I see bucket lights with clear MV?

It depends on the glass and lamp. I know lamps that have a UV block do the same thing too.

Maybe it's the cheap Chinese lamps that only do this. That's likely what this lamp is.

It's not the cheap Chinese lamps that do this, many MH lamps do this too.

But the color likely makes it invisible. It's a kind of comforting but odd color. It makes red things look abnormal.

That's odd. Maybe it differs with brands. Also, this isn't a Philips bulb.

The blue fluorescence is due to UV block coating of the glass. Its commonly used whenever quartz is used as the outer envelope (compact metal halides) as quartz doesnt filter any UV like borosilicate does. Ive got a few Satco ED37 MH lamps that also glow blue like this, there really is no need for it, the envelope on all ED or BT shaped lamps should use borosilicate, not quartz. I think this is another situation where chinese lamp makers add unnecessary materials to their products.

Also, Mercury lamps are a big NO NO on electronic gear, that lumatek ballast puts out HF squarewave. Ive had a mercury vapor lamp pop on electronic gear once, the arctube actually completely ruptured after a few hundred hours of use due to the high frequency and acoustic resonance

Well, it wouldn't likely rupture after only 10 Minutes or so, right?

Nice. Always loved the color of a clear MV

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
