This remains one of my favorite pieces. Two 2" diameter acrylic rods were irradiated with a 5 million electron volt e-beam while they were rotated in a motorized fixture.
The roots of the discharges were mounted facing each other in a frame with illuminates each end with a 5 watt white LED.
(Approximately 26" tall)

I do sell these, although my production rate is somewhat slow. Do you have a particular one you are interested in?

You can also check out my associate's offerings at capturedlightning.com. He produces mostly fully irradiated panels.

I particularly like this one, though I've noticed on your other postings you said you already sold it. I really enjoy the mount it's in, also. Really classy stuff.
