Mercury Starved Philips Alto Fluorescent Light Bulbs

A pair of failing fluorescent light bulb right by my work desk area. The one on the top is more pink all the way and the bottom still have some Mercury leftover that is still vaporizing on the right side (you can see the shadow on the fixture that is brighter than the left side).

I tried to make this underexposure setting with my cell phone camera, but it is not up to par.

Good news Our custodian replaced with Sylvania Octron bulbs today (2017-3-23). That should last a while

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
