    Do Violet Eyes and Grey Eyes Really Exist?

    In independence?
    To me they are combinations of blue-green-brown in different proportions...
    Also what about black?
    Are they just very dark brown or a really different color?
    Here in India we are surrounded by a mass of black and browns and occasional green eyes....

    And if Agrippa could post, it'll be appreciated

    Grey eyes are blue eyes with small levels of brown colour admixture. Violet eyes have something to do with albinism i believe.

    Green eyes are also a mix colour of blue and brown eyes.

    Real black eyes don't exist. They are a very dark brown indeed.

    Green eye color is due to a separate gene, so I'm not sure what you mean by it being a "mix of blue and brown eyes." If you wanted to say that its pigmentation level is in-between blue and brown, yet more on the lighter side, then that would probably make sense. And yes, grey eyes can have small traces of yellow or brown pigmentation, but that isn't what makes them grey. Grey eyes are "lighter" than blue in the sense that they have less pigment overall.
