    On AmplifiedParts.com,
    why is the blue Fender Jewel, and every other color, $2.50, but the aqua Fender Jewel is $7.00?

    Just wondering why. Am I missing something?

    Does the aqua jewel require translucent ultra-fine cobalt powder concentrate mined from deep inside former Soviet mines in Siberia that enhance the magnetic fields around the amp making the speakers sound better?

    Don't know, but here's a tip for you: Get a white LED replacement for that 47 bulb. There's at least one seller on ebay who sells them, as replacements for the lamps in pinball machines. That white LED shows the color of the jewel far better than a 47 bulb does. The color is much cleaner and clearer. Then you can really see the difference between the purple, blue, and aqua jewels. You can also get those LED bulbs in colors. Match up a blue LED with a blue jewel and I swear that color really IS bad for your eyes.

    Actually when the jewel is exposed to gamma radiation, that's what makes it turn blue.
    It's only mildly radioactive for the next 5,000 years no worries.
