That's SO RAD!!! I love cool greens too, I have a GTE Sylvania F40CG and several old smaller F15T8 and F20T12 sized ones.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

That's a very nice lamp. I wish I had a cool green. I haven't seen one probably in 35 years.

Thanks guys! I agree CG is such a nice color
Don't remember for sure, but believe it was in the mid 90's when I bought 4 of these new, 2 of them I used for years til they fully burned out, the other 2 I haven't used much.

Wish it was easier to find colored flourescents, nobody sells anything but the standard stuff.

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

Are these still made? I have only seen one in person and it was @EOL in the old cotton mill where I got a lot of my vintage F40 fixtures.

Better snap em up. Theirs must be NOS. When you click the link to the GE catalog, it says the item is not available.

Thanks man! I will message them and see what they can do. Yea, I have NO F40 colored lamps (other than 3000k-6500k) except a few "Grow" ones, the 6 "Golds" I recently bought and three BLB ones. Thanks for the find and encouragement!
EDIT:
I just called them. They have 6 in stock. They are going to ship them out to me Monday! Thanks again! 6 CGs will go perfect with my 6 GOs in my three lamp Miller fixtures!

CGs are still made but under the INDUSTRIAL marking. They appear to have the Philips end caps.

The great thing about cool green lamps is they match very nicely with clear mercury lamps. I have both in my garage and they look almost the same colour together, but the CG fluorescent doesn't make me look like quite a zombie as the mercury lamp does.

I'm lampin...

I would like a clear mercury lamp too. One of those self ballasted ones would be ideal since I do not have a fixture to run one in. I do have some gear for HPS and MH, as well as plenty of 400W MH high bay fixtures.
The guys at Westside Electric did have all 9 in stock and are shipping them today. Thanks again, xmaslightguy!

I'd like to have an actual MV fixture (one guy on YouTube had actually built a 'lamp' with a clear MV bulb...that thing was cool)

Welcome! you'll love those CG lamps..

Nice, I would lke to find a cool green lamp too. The colour reminds me of the feit diffused mercury lamps that didn't have a pohspohr in them.

@DieselNut if you have gear for MH than maybe you don't need a clear SBMV since some MH gear can also run MV lamps on them. Your 400W MH highbay might also work too depending on the ballast inside.

@Joseph_125, does the ballast label usually indicate that? I do not remember seeing it before, but was not really looking for that then. I have 20 of these lights, which were only used about 2 years before being removed. These are General Electric 400 watt MH units made in 2001. That would be AWESOME to have some 400 watt Mercury lamps! I have a couple 400 watt MH outdoor floods that are NIB which would be BEAUTIFUL with a mercury lamp!

Yep the ballast label should show something like "For 1000W M47 Metal Halide or 1000W H36 Mercury) on the label if it can run MV lamps, Generally, probe start ballasts can run the same wattage MV lamp as probe start MH lamps and MV lamp have similar electrical specs.

Pulse start ballasts might also work with MV with the ignitor removed but the specs are a bit different so it depends on the wattage of the ballast.
