Re: Tesla UV apparatus?

If the gas glows, it is not an x-ray tube. Electrons need to be accelerated through the full potential difference without colliding wth other gas atoms and losing energy in the process. If the glass glows green and there is no gas glowing then that is a different matter.

It appeared to be a small hand-held Tesla coil inside an attaché-sized box
that had various shaped vacuum bulbs which could be attached and glowed with a
purple glow.  If you inserted a metal rod instead of a bulb, you could hold
the rod in one hand and make a fluorescent tube glow by picking it up with the
other hand.....

    It could be a good idea to make sure you don't have an X-ray generator
