    While researching this for myself, I noticed that the high end museum displays are all lit using fiber optics. The idea is the fibers and any filters screen out all UV. You can get special "heads" that hook on to the FO cable to throw the light onto your subject. The light source would then be mounted remotely. This should give you zero heat and as close to zero UV as you can get.

    But all this is expensive.

    Here is the company I have delt with for fiberoptics
    If they won't sell direct to you I can order from them.
