Chromalux light bulbs are made of special composition glass that is not colored or coated, but instead contains neodymium, a rare earth element used in lasers. This earth element is able to absorb yellow and other dulling components of the spectrum. As a result, the light is purified, allowing the values of violet, blue, green, and red components to be strengthened, without producing an imbalance of one color over another.Due to its chromatic balance and color discriminating qualities, Chromalux full spectrum light bulbs produce glare free light that helps you concentrate longer with increased visual acuity and greater comfort. Chromalux full spectrum light bulbs reduce eye stress and create a pleasing, colorful, and relaxing environment that enhances people's sense of well being.
Lumiram is the original maker of the Neodymium glass light source. Originally based in Finland, the company first introduced the Chromalux Neodymium bulbs to the US market in the early 1970s. Since then, those uniquely designed bulbs have been improved and perfected to become the highest quality Full Spectrum bulb on the world's market today.
With its highest standards of European manufacturing, the Lumiram Chromalux bulb provides a striking pure white light and an extended service life averaging 5000 hours. Chromalux is also now available in Halogen, Metal Halide, and LED versions.
The Neodymium rare earth element is compounded with the glass (not coated). The yellow part of the light spectrum is partially filtered out and the result is crisp, more vibrant colors, reduced glare, decreased eye strain and beautiful bright vivid colors that enhance any space.
