I was not very clear in this post, will try to explain.

    The oil is in the center of the coil.
    Field in there is minimal.

Apologies, i was speaking in general terms not specific to a Tesla coil.
I have read about a group of experiments done in partial vacuum with 
different materials. When exposed to high frequency they tend to 
throw off particles. 

> If the coil was in a partial vaccum it would quickly


    It the oil?
    It the form?
    Why would it disintegrate?

Apologies again, still speaking of the previously mentioned
experiment. In the experiment, materials such as ruby crystal,
tungston, and zirconimum were made to throw off particles.
Atoms remaining in the partial vacuum are caused be attracted 
and then repelled from the above mentioned elements. Tesla 
referred to them as tiny hammers.
