Item # P6-3360
Watch as the charged dome of a Van de Graaff generator lights the wand!
Lights up like magic! Or is it?
This glass tube is filled with neon gas at a reduced pressure and is similar to a section of a neon sign. When held near a Van de Graaff generator, electromagnetic or high voltage source, the neon gas begins to ionize and the tube emits a bright orange glow. Neon is the easiest gas to excite into emitting light. This makes for a striking display in a darkened room. You can also use this Neon Wand with our Plasma Globe and the Electrostatic High-Voltage Genecon.
There is a large voltage drop across the tube, so the person holding it will not feel anything.
