Color Temperature of AGA 15" 14W Fluorescent?


What the color temperature is on a 14W 15" AGA Fluorescent? There was one on my MiniBow 7, but there's nothing on the bulb that says what the color temperature-is.

I went to AGA's website, and it doesn't say anything either.

The light looks pretty blue/purple compared to the 3500K lights around my office, so I'm guessing it's around 7000-8000K, maybe even higher.

Does anyone know for sure?

Ah, then those #^$&A at the LFS...

If they're 8000K then I'm going to get me those 9325K.

Thanks for the correction.

Is it the same colour temp for the 20w, 24" T-12, tubes that ship with the 36" single-tube hoods?
