Caption: The Violet Ray is a hand-held device that can be purchased along with a variety of glass applicators, such as a bulb, a comb-rake, or a rod, each with a specific purpose. The glass is inserted into the tip of the hand-held section. Once turned on, the appliance becomes a source of static electricity, whose discharge creates a violet colour (hence, its name) and a pleasant ozone smell.
