Are these high pressure sodium bulbs safe to have in a home? I'm sure they wouldn't be if they were broken, right?

If you are interested in learning more about these lights you can contact the designer since she bought them from a wholesaler called Roost.

I was given 2 of these already from 2 of Denvers Maintenance districts. I wouldn't see why you would ever purchase these... yuck. They are poisionous. If anyone really wants one, I can get them for you at no cost & any handyman can drill a hole in a block for a stand

I totally respect your opinion! But, I think they are fantastic! And a great way to recycle some factory bulbs that would otherwise go to waste. I also think its a good reminder of the history of energy and how we have moved to a more conservative approach in our lighting choices.
