well given that UV light is of a slightly higher frequency than visible violet it makes sense that you can only find UV blue and purple fluorescent lamps. getting a green UV lamp defeats the purpose of having a UV lamp anyway. a UV lamp is intended to illuminate "fluorescent" plastics rather than to emit a large amount of visible light. by doing so you almost have the effect of only those parts being lit up as you do not see much visible light.

those are the only true green UV things i could find.
the fan is actually green LED with black UV cathode. but the case is green UV reactive

green UV light is an oximoron... to concure with nitestick. good luck. all i can find is stuff that lights up green when uv light hits it, concuring with hmammen's findings.
let me know if you find any ultra-green cathodes
