YES, from light bulbs, particularly antique ones IF they are at the proper
vacuum. Most incandescent light bulbs today are void of air, but filled
with a noble gas which of course leads to interesting plasma effects but no
x-rays. If you're unsure use a Geiger counter as a monitor with the probe
placed, say 10 feet, away from the Tesla coil/ bulb. You don't want to get
the Geiger probe too close to the coil because the high voltage can easily

I may not be an expert but I know what I've observed!
