Whether an LED emits blue light depends on what kind of LED it is. Older technology LEDs only emit light in a relatively narrow wavelength. My guess is that the amber LEDs are the older (less expensive) technology and if so they wouldn't emit any blue light. Of course, it's possible that they just put white LEDs in there and coated them with amber color...

Or, as is the case in the amber bulb that I bought, the bulb was designed to emit amber light by altering the amount of luminum gallium indium phosphide in it. This is not an old bulb. They come in red also, as well as warm and cool white (the last one being bluish).
