Electrodes usually glow in different colors such as purple, red, blue and pink.  The main ingredients of our atmosphere are Nitrogen, Oxygen and Argon and sometimes an electode is evaculated at differnt levels of vacuum to attain a hue of colors from white to blue.  Sometimes they are evaculated completely and then backfilled with a pure gas to attain a rich and deep color.  Pure argon would be used for purple and pure neon would be used for red.  A combination of gases and vacuum levels can sometimes achieve spectacular results.

An electrodes output can be increased by a metal structure or wire implanted within it.  Care must be exercised with electrodes that have a strong output as they can cause an electrical burn if left too long in one area on the skin.  Keep it moving as dwelling too long in one area will heat up the skin’s surface which could cause redness or possibly a first degree burn. ( Unless that is what you want )  Another interesting aspect is that if you have two identicle electrodes that are different colors (due to pressure or different gases) their outputs will not be the same.

Bulbs can be used as an electrode when used with an edison adaptor.  Stay away from bulbs that are pressurized or contain a high pressure element within it. As the bulb warms up the high pressure gas heats up, expands and may cause it to explode.
