    Hi Takumi - try "The Lamphouse". They definitely sell UV lighting. I am quite sure that they should be able to help with this globe?

    Not THAT common, requires some searching...

    Yeah try above suggestion...and if they CAN'T help I suggest you pm me and we sort something out for you, OK!

    Les, it's a Power Compact Fluorescent , sometimes referred to as a 'PL' lamp
    Has 4 in-line pins on base end , made up of TWO parallel T5 sections joined near the top end...
