What kind of landscape light is this?


I bought a landscape light at a thrift store to play around with. It is definitely a well light. It has a black shell and a round, rather flat bulb. The connections are exposed on the back of the bulb and the wires screw directly into the bulb. Looks similar to this:



The only difference is the bulb frame has a little clip that hooks onto the black part to hold it in. I am interested in what kind of light this is? I'm assuming it's low voltage? How can I tell? Also, what are well lights good to light? I believe the bulb may say GE.

The lamp is a 12V Par 36

It is a type of up light...used for lighting trees or your house or anything else you want to light from directly below it.

So why would someone choose to use this than a low voltage spot on a stake?

Your guess is as good as mine. They like the look of this better?

Where would the most reasonable place be to purchase something to convert the 120v to 12v? Not interested in a timer or anything.
