Welcome to dickblick
Ordinary fluorescent lamps have an unbalanced spectral color distribution that can be devastating to an artist or designer who is trying to match or reproduce colors. Viewing with a Lumichrome full-spectrum light, however, will produce the highest color rendering index available.
With a color temperature of 5000° Kelvin, the light of a Lumichrome lamp can be compared to natural, outdoor lighting at noon, when the blue and red parts of the spectrum are present in equal amounts. (CRI rating is 96.)
Each carton contains four, 48" long, 40W lamps that fit right into your existing T12 fluorescent fixtures.
Electrical Warning — All electrical products have U.S. standard plugs and voltage. Due to damage that can occur when using incompatible plugs, sockets, or converters, Blick does not ship electrical items or accessories outside of North America or to freight forwarders.

Great color spectrum bulbs.
By Scott the violin maker
from Milwaukee, WI
Comments about Lumichrome Full Spectrum Fluorescent Lamps:
I make violins and varnish under these lamps. For the last several years I've had difficulty working evenings in the shop and the color spectrum of these lights cause zero eye strain. My clients have noticed a warmer environment as well. I also installed these in my varnish room.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sunlight in my studio
By Night Owl Painter
from Mountain View, AR
I'm a night owl, and I enjoy painting when the house is quiet and everyone else is asleep. I ordered 16 48" bulbs for my studio and I love the way they light up the room. I can paint all night long and still have the same advantage of painting in daylight.
The healthiest and best lights
from Concord, CA
These are the healthiest lights ever. My plants are now growing toward the light rather than away from them (as with traditional fluorescent bulbs). My plants also have much more new growth rather than dying leaves toward traditional fluorescent bulbs. The moods of everyone around the lights are better and people tend to want to be under them. Even my cut flowers last for over 1 week under these lights. I feel less tired under these lights too. They are much brighter so you can see better, but are not annoying. I am so happy that a top notch company like Dick Blick has these lights from Germany. I have recommended these lights and Dick Blick to all of my family and patients. I have replaced all of my lights at home and the office with these lights.
The best lights, service, and prices
These are the best lights available on the market. Not only are colors more pleasing and accurate, but the lights are very healthy. They do not have radiation emitting from them like conventional T-12 bulbs. They also simulate natural, healthy sunlight. They are bright without glare. Dick Blick has the best service and prices too. Buy with confidence! I'm a repeat buyer!
