Description

Details

Rare neon condenser electrode containing RA

Designed for external use, when illuminated, this electrotherapeutic electrode is visually dramatic and glows an ethereal white/orange.

This violet wand electrode fits the 11mm standard European violetwand.

One for serious collectors only - from a bygone era of quackery, scientific discovery and mythology where electricity and radium combined were believed to have have purifying properties able to cure an eradicate serious illness.

During the heyday of Radium numerous quack medical devices appeared on the market infused with a small amount of Radium, promising numerous cure-all benefits to users in the early 1900’s. They are not proven to provide any medicinal or health benefit whatsoever, and indeed being radioactive they should not be used for these purposes.

This electrode comes with the original box (showing a fair amount of oxidation and discolouration through age - the edges slightly tatty and torn).

This electrode contains a separate isolated chamber believed to contain thorium and radium

We do not recommend that this is used - but suggest that this electrode would suit a serious collectors of early medical devices who are interested in this bygone era of Radium.
