They've been around for some time, probably not in retail stores though.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Wouldn't they be good for stimulating mercury vapor?

Walmart and Home Depot only sells "warm white" types.

Dave, do these "Flicker" at 60Hz noticeably? If not I might look and see if Amazon, etc. has them.

...I just ordered some. Thanks for the link! Even if they're too glary or unnatural I'm sure I can find a use for them...refrigerator bulbs, etc. There's also some non-filament opaque 6w Bluefire bulbs I might also try that are also daylight in places where clear might be too glary (hanging pendant fixtures at eye level over kitchen counter, etc).

Oh cool! This is an effect you can't produce well with incandescents, even with blue glass.

I'm lampin...

I also just today bought two GE 2700K 11w A19 800 lumen LEDs locally to try. I really like them. They're similar to the Philips "version" (after the L-prize and "paddle bulb" generations, the next thing after those, might even have something else by now I'm not aware of). They're a little glary though, but maybe I'm used to the relatively diffuse light of spirals by now...for us milennials the spiral is the light bulb we're kind of used to now LOL.

I almost hate to say it on LG, but I think I'm converting everything to LED in my house except linear fluorescents and HIDs.

OK, my pack of the above lamps arrived today. I really like them! A little glary but they work well for what they are. I put two in the refrigerator of all places...vast improvement over the 40w incandescents they replaced to say the least! Two others went in an outdoor motion-sensor light.

A couple things I observed:

They're very resistant to voltage fluctuations and brownouts. I live off-grid and thus get the wandering frequency and flucuating voltage from generator power. Being 85-260v, this doesn't surpise me...these could even be used in European countries!

The tiny electronics in the E27 base of the bulb still buzz noticeably on modified-sine-wave inverter electricity, about the same as 23w CFLs do.

I still need to test how much RFI they make. If little to none I have another application I'll be ordering more of these for.

Bought some of these to use in the string lights and RLMs around the paintball field. They are nice but they are a little glary.

Definitely a little on the glary side, but bright! I have two in a motion sensor light and two in the refrigerator.

Awesome just for having Daylight in filament form. Those would go great for artistic designs, where the light from the lamp is seen as part of the design and not as glare

I just got some of these and put them in exterior coach lights. They look just like small metal halide lamps. I love them
