    Um, why does it matter? I mean, obviously some people have eyes that aren't quite one color or another. Hazel just fits that space where brown, green or blue isn't quite it. It's like asking what color is teal? Well, it's...well...teal. It's neither blue or green yet some will swear it's one or the other. Yet teal is classified as it's own color.

    This is like me, I don't know what the hell is up with my eyes. They are like a green/gray/blue mix, and they look different depending on the light. Under higher light they are blueish grey, even light greenish grey. I guess that's pretty common for mixed eyes, I just say they're green for simplicities sake though. I should probably be more accurate. They're ambiguous though that's for sure, I don't even know how to classify them. Am really sensitive to bright light, leads me to believe that maybe they're more gray.

    (was looking for any threads relating to mixed eye colors, is why I'm thread necroing here)

    I originally thought that hazel eyes were a mix of brown and green, however I've seen a lot of people whose eyes were classified as hazel medically or in their passports, and their eyes looked a reddish brown. An interesting explanation:

    Hazel eyes are actually the most misunderstood eye color. First of all, they are a medium mixed color - brown with small lighter admixtures but only certain admixture, not just any. They fall on the Scale right down the middle between the lightest blue to cole black. And hazel eyes are light to deep brown in color. If you've ever seen a "brown-eyed person" "claim" to have hazel eyes and reacted with, "they look brown to me" that's because hazel eyes ARE brown eyes . . . with a twist . . . a golden, reddish twist.

    There's a modern North American misconception about hazel eyes. Pure hazel eyes are only golden brown and/or reddish brown. Pure hazel eyes have a deep brown iris with small or significant gold amber and/or red/orange specks throughout the iris with some eyes having slight green specks and/or a dark green outline (circle) around the iris. Also there may be a gold amber and/or red/orange ring around the pupil. What hazel eyes could never be is a blue, grey or significant green mix with brown. This has been known for centuries in Europe and its colonies. However, over the last century, people in North America began misusing the term "hazel" by inaccurately calling any mixed eye color hazel.

    Hazel eyes are of indo-European origins and appear to shift in color from deep, chocolate brown to a light gold, amber or honey color depending upon lighting conditions. There may be a green tinting as well for those with green specks. However, green is in no way a requirement for hazel eyes as pure hazel is only brown, red and gold.

    It's possible for those of Middle East and Central Asia to have hazel eyes. However, it is due to white admixture in their ancestry as hazel eyes are dominate in Europe and those of European ancestry exclusively.

    True Hazel Eyes coloring in regular lighting.



    True Hazel Eyes in bright lighting.



    True Hazel Eye coloring in direct sunlight.



    So, in conclusion, hazel eyes are deep brown in dim or regular lighting. They are golden/amber and/or reddish/orange in direct sunlight. And sometimes, there may be a slight green tint. What hazel eyes NEVER are is a grey, green or blue mix! See, hazel eyes are named after the HAZELNUT!

    A hazelnut could be brown!

    A hazelnut could be gold!

    A hazelnut could be red!

    And a hazelnut could even be a little bit green!

    But what a hazelnut could NEVER be is blue or grey!

    If your eyes are a blue-brown, they are a blue mix. If they are grey-brown, they are a grey mix. If they are a green-brown, they are a green mix. If they are blue, grey, green and brown, you could take your pick. If they are gold and brown, they are hazel. If they are red and brown, they are hazel. If they are gold and red and brown, they are hazel. If they are gold and red and green and brown, they are hazel.

    Hazel is a color of its own. And you could see your true eye color by looking at your eyes in direct sunlight.

    I suppose that then brown-green and brown-blue or brown-grey eyes are simple "mixed"? Or they could be a result of sectoral heterochromia. An extreme example:

    For me hazel eyes are quite same thing as brown eyes. Meaning: genetically hazel eyed person needs to have brown eyed ancestor (carrying brown eyed genes). So his/hers kids can easily have brown eyes or hazel eyes ... no matter the partner.

    Well, we all descend from brown-eyed ancestors, Europids originally all had brown eyes, blue eyes are a mutation. Two blue eyed parents can also have a brown eyed child, and two brown eyed parents can have a blue eyed child. But if you have hazel eyes it's more likely that your child will inherit them since brown is dominant and blue is recessive.

    ''Sure'' ... but if your all ancestors back (as long as you know) are and have been light eyed....that mutation is very strong on you. No reason to risk it then.

    Lilly has hazel eyes, as I've previously stated. Yet they are really light colored, with a blue-grey tint around the perimeter of the iris.

    The lighting used for her profile pic makes her eyes appear dark brown, which they definitely are not.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
