    yes, that's exactly what dark-mixed is light brown with some green and sometimes but rarely very little blue or gray along with the briwn. but the classic is a light brown with some or a little of green in it.

    hazel (means nut) so of course is light brown, so sometimes that light brown have a little of green in them and they are still hazel. But when the color is mostly green the eye color is green. see the pics i posted.

    Re: Hazel eyes

    Hmm, I always thought hazel was anything with light brown, green, and blue, or some combination of the three mixed in, with one color usually being the dominant one, but it doesnt really matter which?

    Re: Hazel eyes

    these are good example of hazel eyes. ligh brown with yeloowish-green shade stronger in the light. With only sometimes very little blue-gray in it.

    yes, that's what hazel eyes are very light brown abd so with many times green in it. the green look stronger in the light, and very little or inexistent in dark places. Is a color that can't be called really brown nor green.

    You may not see anything bad, but it's not because it ISN'T bad. Political soveriegnty and perasive multiculturalism (not to mention certain kinds of teachers and parents) ALLOW you to be "free" to "see" whatever you "want." Similarly, there's also no need for 1.5 billion people in China to think of Caucasians as anything but all "white," but I'd be flattered if they would avoid using the same name for me as they do for you, and would make sure they DID so.

    Just because an eye color doesn't "exist" within 500 km of where you live, hardly justifies not KNOWING it exists. So yeah of course there's something "bad" about it, but ignorance has always been bliss for those who only want 'bliss.'

    Before there was blue and brown, there wasn't even ANY "eye color" because no one bothered to notice or care about it -- no doubt because there was "no need for it," and I suppose to the likes of you, that would be okay too (if it served YOUR "point of view" of course!).

    Fortunately it's not up to YOUR point of view to determine whether there is a need or not; once someone decides to "see it," it's THERE! And when they SHOW IT to you, you'll see it too, need or not. (Unless of course you keep people "like that" out of your midst, but then again that's why skadi's in English, and Finnish, among others, is Finnished).
    In a woman's love is injustice and blindness towards all that she does not love... Woman is not yet capable of friendship: women are still cats and birds. Or, at best, cows. Woman is not yet capable of friendship. But tell me, you men, which of you is yet capable of friendship? --- Nietzsche, TSZ

    Finns call that green, not brown, the photo you posted is featuring a green iris with a brown ring around the pupil. I have somewhat similar eye color, only the outer ring is grey rather than green, and they either called it grey or got just confused and couldn't decide what to call it. That kind of multicolored eyes are quite rare in Finland, and I'm yet to see any Finn who calls it straight out brown or whatever without analyzing it for 5 minutes first and trying to decide for another few minutes.

    Here is the difference between hazel and brown, for those who are unfamiliar:



    Photograph of a Hispanic woman with heterochromia. Her left eye is green/ hazel while her right eye is brown.

    I have seen that sort of 'hazel' eyes with bluish grey/grey/green with a brown ring (or 'star') around the pupil on people of different nations. Irish, German, Russian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Spaniard, some Irano-Afghan tribes such as the Baluchis and Pashtuns, many Americans of European descent as well.
