What are some household bulbs with the best quality light? The GE Reveal bulbs have a high CRI but tend to be too blue. What other bulbs have a high CRI?

Are you referring to tungsten light bulbs or compact fluorescents? All tungsten light bulbs have a high CRI, but some are warmer or cooler than others, but that has nothing to do with CRI, just color temperature.

I thought GE Reveal bulbs are neodymium glass, which greatly reduces the sources CRI.
