I would say that at least 1/3 or more of these Slavic honeys whose eye color is clearly visible have grey eyes, and some of the others are grey mixed with blue or green. For a good close-up view, look at #41.

I think grey is the intermediate of blue-green.

I think the grey eye could be a cross between light green eyes and a light hazel.

Grey eyes seem to be a genetic response to the same environment as produced blue eyes, only one came from the West-blue and one from the East-grey. Grey eyes are more often correlated with ash blondism and china-white skin while blue eyes are correlated with golden blond, red or redish brown hair and florid skin.

I tried to find out myself on the internet. But I didn't really succeed. That's why I am asking you guys if you have any idea where grey eyes are really common or where does it come from?

I have blue/grey eyes too which really changes from color on pictures sometimes.

I know a few persons with that eye color that change from blu to gray, I had a friend who had blue eyes but they change to a gray shade in rainy days. It was really funny.

I suposse the blue/green eyes tend to change like the blue/green and the hazel eyes.

Northern Europe, of course. I imagine the epicentre of blue eyes to be around Eastern Scandinavia, just as blonde hair.

I meant Finland and Sweden, to be exact. Sorry for the ambiguity.

They come from the Zyklop.

A truly grey eye will show itself as such in any light as it reflects only a particular spectrum of light: it appears very "icy". None of the eyes here posted are actually grey in the definitive sense: they are blue-grey; light hazel; or opaque green. (A lovely eye none the less Zyklop!)

Generally: (true) Grey is recessive to the green/blue 'range'; but dominant to the most recessive colour violet.

Modern predominance of grey eyes occur in Northern/western most Alpine regions.

Via ancient texts, we might reconstruct grey eyes as having originated (where else) in Scandanavia.

If I had an operable web-cam, I would post mine.

Also here in Estonia most of the local population has grey eyes or grey/green/blue mixed.

Exactely, about 90% of all humans have brown eyes, the rest are blue, green and grey, while green is a very rare eye colour. Finland is the country with the most blue-eyed people in the world, 90% of the population have blue eyes.

90% of light eyed yes, and perhaps even more. A vast proportion of those is "colourless", meaning too light for being called as blue, but grey.

We tend to call hazel eyed people as "brown eyed", and even those are very rare. In fact I had to learn the term after I became active in racialist forums. And real brown eyes are even more rare among native Finns and with those foreign admix is clear.
