    HMS Wivern by Chausseur

    http://The small interior bulb has mercury in it. Dispose properly not in regular garbage. I also use two bulbs. Break one for the end and the other cut about 1/4 to 1/8 from its end destroying the screw base. A diamond cutter works the best. Acid,etc no so much, personally don't use it. I have a lot of ends, want one?
