Does the color of light matter to you or your business?  Unless we are looking directly at a light source- the sun, a candle, a headlight, we are viewing reflective light.  That is, the light that is reflected off of an object enters our eye, and through our retina and optic nerve finds its way to our brain where it is determined what we are looking at.  In order for us to perceive a certain color it has to be present in the light source.  If you have ever purchased an item and thought it was one color in the store only to get it outside or home and it is different this is why.
