If what you do has a lot to do with visual sharpness or acuity, you will need a good lamp that provides the best illumination. One kind of lamp that fits this description well is the Gemologist’s Lamp, which is likely to be the right tool for your job. It is a tabletop lamp that is originally meant for professional jewellers so that they can have full-spectrum natural daylight when they carry out their tasks. For the grading of diamond colours, very true or natural light is needed, so a jeweller’s lamp such as the Gemologist’s Lamp is important when gemology is concerned.
On the other hand, the Gemologist’s Lamp features clear and untinted illumination, which is of great help to numismatists, readers, philatelists who require a great deal of visual acuity for their work. The colour temperature delivered by the Gemologist’s Lamp is of 6,000º Kelvin, which is twice of the colour temperature of regular incandescent light bulbs. The lamp’s colour temperature is equivalent to that of the sunlight at noon, for the truest white light of the most accurate colour.
The 26”-long fluorescent tube on this lamp with 13-watts can emit light over a large work area. The slim design of the lamp also doesn’t take up much desk space, leaving you ample illuminated area on your desk to work on. The lamp’s head can be rotated 270 degrees and pivoted 90 degrees so that you can direct the light to the precise spot you need it. It is powered by AC and has a bulb rating of 6000 hours.
