Default is it busted?

just wondered if this el34 is ok? its from a kit ive nearly finished,the others are silvery on top but this one has a white powder on most of the top,and small bits of white dust inside,theres no obvious signs of damage to the glass.should i just hope for the best and use it or get a replacment?

Thats what a vacuum tube (valve) looks like minus the vacuum. If it was part of a kit and was shipped that way maybe they will replace it for you..
