A19 / 53W Chromalux® Enhanced™ Full Spectrum Bulb


The original light bulb for health and wellness, enhanced.

This bulb is the perfect go-to full spectrum light bulb for all your household lamps. Its light is pure and white with gorgeous violet undertones, providing a pure and inspiring light perfect for any environment or time of day. If you're new to Chromalux® full spectrum light, we highly recommend starting with this bulb, along with one of our higher wattage incandescent bulbs (like the Chromalux® 100W incandescent bulb), to see the subtle beauty of each type. Trying out different glass types (frosted vs. clear) is also recommended!

Chromalux® Enhanced™ bulbs use the same pure neodymium glass envelope as Chromalux® incandescent but provide enhanced lumen output (18% more light!), with a whiter light spectrum (4200K vs. 3750K of Chromalux® incandescent).

In other words, you get all the benefits of Chromalux® natural light in a slightly more energy-efficient form factor, but don't worry; these bulbs are not LED!

We love using this vivid light during the daytime, whether in an office table lamp, living room floor lamp, or wherever your heart desires!

This is no ordinary light bulb - engage your senses with our bestselling pure and vivid light! 

About Chromalux®

About Chromalux® full spectrum lamp, the original light bulb for health and wellness since 1959:

🌈 incredible color balance and acuity (CRI 98-99)

☀️ balanced, full spectrum light

😀 natural mood booster

👁 zero eye strain or glare

⚡️low flicker, no EMF

The ultimate light bulb for your health and well-being! Chromalux® full spectrum lamp has been enhancing people's lives and the spaces they live in since it was first created in Finland over 60 years ago. 

The Chromalux® full spectrum bulb creates a soothing yet vibrant interior space that you'll love to live, work, and play in. 

All Chromalux®  light bulbs contain neodymium glass which filters out yellow and other dulling frequencies of the light spectrum, resulting in filtered light with enhanced violet, blue, green, and red tones. The result is an environment that comes to life: colors are more vibrant, textures enhanced, and contrast increased. 

Chromalux® bulbs are the ultimate tool in supporting your health + well-being. They are, by definition, low in flickerEMF safe, and absolutely beautiful.  


Many of the benefits of Chromalux® lie in our signature neodymium glass, which purifies light to provide the ultimate soft, crisp, and pure natural light that helps you see better and makes you feel better, all while providing your body with the pure, full spectrum of visible (and non-visible light) it requires.  

Feel Better: Well-being all year round

Designed for extended usage as a healthy replacement for ordinary light bulbs, Chromalux® provides your body with the pure full spectrum light it was designed to receive by closely mimicking nature's sunlight.

Just like the quality of food we ingest, the quality of light we use can make a difference in our overall well-being and vitality. 

Chromalux® bulbs contain more of the soothing red spectrum with no peaks or valleys in the visible light spectrum, consistent with natural daylight, and unlike most types of lighting available today.

See Better: Eye Health, Visual Comfort+Acuity

Chromalux® bulbs are naturally low in flicker, but the real difference is seen through its signature neodymium glass, which filters glare and creates better contrast and definition between colors, tones, and textures, to finally allow your eyes to relax and see clearer. Thanks to these inherent chromatic balance and color discriminating qualities, Chromalux® has been a top recommendation for the low vision population since the 1980s, and has been shown to enhance visual acuity. 

Enhanced Environments: Pure+Vivid Colors

Chromalux® is the original neodymium glass light bulb, which works by purifying the visible light spectrum - removing glare and dulling frequencies - while strengthening violet, red, blue, and green values. As a result, light is filtered, cutting glare and revealing the most beautiful crisp and vivid colors.

The Chromalux® light bulb brings the beautifully enhanced colors, texture, and contrast inherently present under natural sunlight, back into the home. 

Under Chromalux® light, you'll notice colors, textures, and tones become more vibrant and your home more alive: very much like photoshop for real life! 

Where to use

Fixture: Perfect for all floor, desk, and table lamps.
Rooms: Living room, Office

A19 bulbs are not intended for use in recessed light fixtures.

Use clear bulbs for more luminosity in shaded and/or covered lamps and frosted bulbs where the bulb is in your line of sight.

Frosted vs. Clear Glass

Clear glass bulbs are a few lumens brighter than their frosted counterpart.

We recommend using clear glass in shaded or covered lamps if you'd like things a bit brighter, or if you'd like to a create a more vivid environment.

Clear glass = crisp + vivid

Frosted glass = soft + smooth

Both are equally beautiful + natural. Try them all!

Our Magic Element

Without ever turning it on, the most noticable quality of a Chromalux® light bulb is its lovely lavender glass. Responsible for this lovely tint and pure light output of Chromalux® is the element neodymium.

A stunning lavender or blue in appearance, neodymium is an earth element that possesses some unique color enhancing and purification qualities.

Neodymium acts as a filter - absorbing dulling components of the visible light spectrum - like yellow - to purify your environment and naturally enhance colors and textures.

When used in Chromalux® light bulbs, these color enhancing and purification qualities are simply stunning.


What is the difference between incandescent and enhanced?

Our Enhanced™ collection uses a halogen burner instead of a traditional incandescent filament. An enhanced type of incandescence, the resulting light is 18% more luminous and slightly whiter in color temperature than that of our incandescent bulbs. There's no difference in benefits, just appearance of the light.

Are these dimmable?

53W a Winner!

These light bulbs are great! Since there was a sale going on, I thought I'd stock up. And I wanted to try the 53W in my torchiere floor lamp because the 72W I bought before still seemed too bright in the evenings. Nice difference for my eyes!! Thank you for your great products!!!

Lovely, warm, natural feeling lighting

My eyes like these bulbs

I was looking for a bulb that was easy on the eyes and I have found it. With other bulbs the light seemed too harsh or my eyes strained. I would describe it as a pleasant light. It just works for me.

I love Chromalux!

I have had a chromalux light bulb for a very long time in my art room and I decided to switch to having them in my house in the most important light fixtures. I find that they are very invigorating and help with creativity and make me feel better and give me more energy, which is why I ordered a whole bunch, because they are not available in Canada and hard to get. I'm so glad I discovered Healthlighting!
