Astrolux SC copper yellow spot

I recently received an Astrolux SC copper and I’m very pleased with the product. However, there is a small yellow spot in the center of the beam when the light is on. I think that I’ve seen an explanation for this in another post but I don’t remember where. Does anyone remember what causes this ?

Thanks,
Mike

CREE, is actually an ancient word that means many tints… Or shifting tints, depends on the translation….

Just a side effect of the way the light us shifted in frequency by the phosphor layer, and mre noticeable due to the HI flat dome and great reflector of the SC…

I have the 3B tint and it’s not a yellow ring, it’s a yellow spot in the center of the beam. The more that I use the light…the more that I like that yellow spot.
