Looks very nice and Colourful!

I have one of those green neon Lamps, i made a "nightlight" out of it. I also wanted to get the other Colors, but the Electronics Store where i bought them only had the Green ones in Stock at the Moment.

Always wondered how they made these coloured ones. Are the green and blue ones using argon or mercury to excite phosphor or is the red neon light capable of activating phosphor....but then if so wouldn't the red light make purple in the blue and yellow in the green?

Nice image! The green ones usually use neon plus a phosphor, but blue pink and white glow lamps generally use argon, xenon or mercury-argon discharges. Osram also made green with xenon plus phosphor but I think that was maybe unique to them.

I am curious about the difference between the red and orange. Is the red just a standard neon lamp driven at higher current, or really sold to have a more reddish discharge?

Thats a good question. Must be how much power its getting to make it yellow or red. Or my best guess is theres a slight hint or trace of another gas to make it yellower, helium?

I have all the colors. I have the red ones (I believe those are considered the high output types) I also have the standard output orange and coated yellow. Also have green, blue and white. https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=4647&pos=23&pid=134397

Nice display! I was not aware of the existence of a redder glow lamp (i.e. top left). It's discharge appears abnormally contracted... did you drive the lamp beyond its nominal specs? If not, then I can imagine that you'd get such a discharge with a higher neon fill pressure than in standard glow lamps.

Unless I am mistaken, the upper left is an NE-2H (C2A) lamp, the 'H' presumably to mean high brightness. Link to data sheet: http://www.jameco.com/Jameco/Products/ProdDS/210315.pdf
The upper right lamp is a regular NE-2 (A1A) lamp. Link to data sheet: http://www.jameco.com/Jameco/Products/ProdDS/27351.pdf

Interested mainly in discharge lighting (mercury, sodium, neon) and also old and unusual incandescents.
