What color eyes would be considered Hazel?

I was reading the post about eye colors. What would you consider hazel to be? My mother always told me my eyes were hazel because they were different colors, but everytime I see "hazel" eyes on the internet or something they seem to have gold tones, dark green tones and brown tones. "earthy" looking colors mixed together. Just because your eyes have different colors in them does that really make them officially hazel? Mine are bright, mixed blue, green and gray...Weird colors. I've never heard people actually say my eyes were one, specific color. Some will say I have green eyes, some will say blue and others will say gray or hazel.

  • my definition of hazel are eyes that cant be described as solely brown, blue, or green b/c they have a mix or change colors depending on the person's clothes/mood.

    imo your eyes are hazel from how you've described them

  • it might be one of the crazy colors that reflects whatever color is closest to your face (your shirt)..my husband has a weird color..sometimes they look more green, sometimes more gray, depending on his shirt color...he, however, thinks they are light brown...go figure.

  • Good question! Mine are hazel but like you said, earthy tones...light brown in the center and olive green on the rest. I went to dictionary.com and typed in"hazel" and the definitions were all;
    "golden brown," "yellow-brown" or "light brown."

  • they are mixed color eyes.

    you say earthy which is interesting since another term for them is "woodland eyes" since they are so earthy. :)
