Green: Mostly found in the Northern European countries, such as Finland, Norway, and Ice land, just 2% people out of the world’s population possess green eyes. The eyes take a emerald shade because of such people genetically produce less melanin in the eyes than others.

Amber: Also called wolf eyes (because amber eyes are most common in wolves) the golden yellow eyes with a touch of copper in them also makes me think of the sunset. The amber shade is because of the presence of lipochrome, the yellow pigment in the iris taking dominance.

Violet: Violet eyes are most found in albinos, and extremely rare otherwise. Bloodshot blue eyes also give off a violet shade, hence they it’s actually a trick of the mind, and so commonly mistaken from being actually violet.

Black: The debate still continues – Do black eyes actually exist or are they just very very dark brown eyes? Well, if they do exist, they are indeed very rare.

Red: Without any doubt, the most rare of all eye colors is red. (Picture red eyes – ugh, they give me the goosebumps). Though this eye color is mostly found in albinos, they are also found in people who have leakage of blood in their iris.


This has been one of the most interesting talks ever. It's really neat to find out something new about people. For those of you who shared pictures, you all have very beautiful eyes. For those of you who didn't I am certain you also have very beautiful eyes. Thanks for sharing everyone.

Red eyes are not actually red, they are clear. Albinos possess no color pigmentation at all, so the red you see is actually blood behind the eyes.

 For about 3 years my DD's eyes were grey, now they are dark brown.  She is the only red head I've ever seen with dark brown eyes.
