I think this lamp contains indium and sodium like most pink and magenta MH lamps. I don't know if it also contains lithium though. What about using calcium in additional to the sodium and the lithium, and get rid of the indium. Calcium produce mainly in the red.
I think that this lamp operating best at vertical base-up burning position being a probe-start MH lamp with a plain MV burner design.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Looked exactly like this... wondering why they called it red

It was really awesome, going to grab the remaining colored MH at the shop.. by the way will it lose color over time?

This lamp may become bluer during lifetime, as sodium is lost from the arctube over time.

I have one 400W MV ballast, 3.20A, and the one I'm using to lit the lamp was the 400W metal halide ballast, 3.5A. Would love to see the color shift when burning it base-up, not sure why some lamp doesn't state the burning position, in this situation can we automatically assume that it is Universal?

If the MV ballast have different current than the pulse-start MH ballast, so this lamp designed to operate at around 3.20a, and 3.5a would slightly overdrive it. Universal burning probe-start MH lamps, can only be burned base-up or horizontal, but not base-down or diagonally.
