There is provided a white light illumination system including a blue LED and a luminescent material. The system color output is improved when a line connecting the LED color coordinates and the luminescent material color coordinates approximates the Black Body Locus on the CIE chromatically diagram. The LED may have a peak emission wavelength between 470 and 500 nm. The luminescent material may be (Y
