Help Identifying Bulb

Can anyone help identify the type of the second bulb in high beam housing?

I just lost my drivers side high beam and saw a small square piece that appears to be from the second bulb in the housing (not the H7).

I have never seen a bulb like this before. I was hoping someone could tell what it is and what it is supposed to be.

I bought the car with an HID conversion but I do not know which it is. I haven't pulled the housing apart yet to get the bulb. I was hoping to do it all in one shot.

Thanks for any help. Car is a 2006 Elise.

thats an LED bulb with a design i've never seen before, but you can get a functionally similar led 194 wedge bulb for super cheap on ebay, or good quality from

you can also use a 168 wedge bulb thats a little brighter depending on what you want asthetically.

194 is 2 candlepower where 168 is 3 candlepower
