The light that’s perfect for emeralds, rubies, and alexandrites. Yellow light is a 3500K soft lighting that you can also use for hand photography to enhance your beautiful skin tone.
Further, the white light and the yellow light offer adjustable light intensities. To adjust the intensity, you just press the side button up to three times for low light intensity, medium, or high.
