    Strange metal screw thingy with red gem cut object on end...Gauge light?

    Found this in my yard. Its a small screw in type object with male threads. Its silver colored metal, with a red gem cut type object in the end. Its only about 1/2" across and about 3/4" long. They used to work on cars at my house, so maybe some type of old car gauge light What is it?

    Maybe a shift indicator light from an old tachometer?

    They are called light jewels. Hard to tell exactly what it is off of.

    Yup, the were used on instrument panels, have some in the tool box for 24v systems on the trucks.

    From the size of yours I would probably go with one off an amp though maybe like this one
