flicker. The colors is close to daylight and they last a long time. Also the
don't produce anywhere near as much heat as normal lamps. I got the idea

to light mineral specimens I like to photograph. One disadvantage is they

Here is the answer to your prayers.
I use Two 26 Watt Compact Fluorescents and they are excellent.
They have a CRI (Color Rendition Index) of 92 and a color temperature of
