    I'm looking to ID an unknown variety of diodes. I've salvaged them off
    some older monitors, and they have the following symbology:

    Either ---[ --> <-- ]--- in a square box or a plain and simple
    ---|><|--- The second symbol correlates to a gunn diode, or so GIS
    tells me, but these just don't look like the pictures it displays of
    real gunn's. Physically, they are between a 1/4 and a 1/2 W resistor
    in size, and they have three coloured bands on them, with a noticeable
    gap between the first and second bands. They have a clear outer shell,
    with some sort of metal a couple mill's wide inside of them, but my
    eyes can't really make out any details on it.

    Anyway, any help is appreciated.
