Can anyone help me identify this diode?

    I have a bunch of blue diodes with the usual black band indicating the negative. It says:
    13
    1
    G
    1.2

    on the diode itself.
    I guess the 1.2 is 1.2 volts? I believe it's 1.2 not L2.

    I cannot remember where I bought them - Radio Shack, Newark, Jameco?

    Just curious before I start testing it if someone can spare me the trouble?

    I normally use little orange diodes. Perhaps I bought these for some special project a long time ago - I just forget.

    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I think we'd want some detailed pix, those numbers do not come up as anything I can identity or they come up as all sort of different things so I'm not going to even begin to guess. 1.2V wouldn't be correct as they don't make Zeners that low in voltage.

    If we can't identify them diodes and rectifiers are dirt cheap depending on what you want to do with them.
