It's fast-recovery
Report of a recovery-time measurement: 120nS, so it should work fine on KHz fast inverters/multipliers. See tesla coil forum http://www.pupman.com/listarchives/2002/February/msg01411.html

Air Breakdown Concerns
This is a great price for a 6kV rectifier. Potting anything working in that region and above is pretty good practice regardless of case dimensions.

Air breaks down at around 3 Megavolts per meter, which comes out to 30kV per centimeter.
Does anybody know the dimensions of the package?

this diode is labeled gp260

Diode rating
The size of the molded epoxy is probably not adequate for 6kV; some of these type diodes are intended to be "re-molded" or potted in a final product to provide enough space between the 2 connections so that breakover does not occur.
