Novelty lighting fixture.

Tiffany lamp?

Lava lamp?

Heck no....

Plasma Ball!

Apparently they are commercially available, including for home use, and have been for quite some time. How did I, science-boy, miss this fad?

I remember as a kid wandering into Spencer Gifts....a once chain novelty store in Malls everywhere...and seeing these.

Thought they were so cool! Then, when I got to college, it seemed like every hippy I knew had one in their room, along with glow in the dark stars on the ceiling and a black light.....

They sort of lost their uniqueness after that!
