Amber Stained Glass Lamp Temps

I'm working on designing some amber sleep hacking stained glass lamps and am trying to decide on the optimal shade.

What is the ideal temperature setting for an evening bulb?  


I understand melatonin suppression is intensity dependent, meaning that exposure to a bulb half as dark as another for twice as long results in equal suppression.  so if you're up for 3-4 hours after the sun sets, what temp would you like to be exposed to?


I'm going to use a 3 level dimmer and would like to get the middle setting as close to that temp as possible.  

maybe i'm overthinking it, but there are a lot of different shades of amber to chose from so might as well.  


also, if you can recommend any good studies/papers on this please send them my way.
