    Question Penatrating Blue Irish Eyes

    Why do so many Irish people have large, clear, piercing blue eyes? These are not your ordinary, everyday blue eyes I'm talking about. These are the kind of blue eyes that are so penetrating they can almost hypmotise you. I don't see eyes this vivid in any other Nordic nation. Is this a Bruenn trait?:

    Fro what i know, Grey eyes are more typical of nirmal nordis and northeuropeans from the I.E. invasions........


    BLUE eyes are a more archaic trait...........from a Cromagnoid source.

    So you're saying blue eyes are not a progressive characteristic? But rather grey eyes are preferable?

    "preferable" isn't on of my words. Neither i cited anything about progressiveness of the eye colour.



    Simply i think Blue eyes are from an Upper Paleolithic source. More ancient.

    Isn't gray just a variation of blue?

    All eye colours are due to variations in the amount and distribution of pigment in the iris of the eye.

    The explanation I've read for blue eyes is that eyes are blue for the same reason that the sky appears blue. That is that sparsely distributed particles of dust in the upper atmosphere (or sparsely distributed dots of pigment in the eye) absorb and scatter light and that when light is scattered in this way, more of the longer wavelengths contained in the light (including the blue hues) are less prone to scattering, and so seem to predominate in light that gets reflected or transmitted.

    Also there are two types of pigment, there is a brown pigment and a yellow pigment, which combine to give colour variations from green through yellow/hazel to brown and black.

    If that wasn't enough there are also two layers of pigment containing cells in the iris one in front and another beneath or behind it.

    Yes.....we could say that. However the big amount of Blue eyes in peripheric zones of Europe, tend to confirm the thesis of the ancient origin of tihs trait. Gray eyes are so a : "more recent version of Blue eyes". Brought in Europe by more recent Indo-European populations. Very soon, Gray eyes outnumbered Blue eyes in many region of Europe......the "recent version" of blue eyes (gray), outnumbered the "Old version" of Blue eyes (real blue).

    Just my theory however.

    Yes, Surely in a general perspective, the light eyes are "light" cause a Lack of melanine.
    Blue (or Gray) isn't a colour , per se, rather an absence of colour. If we add , gradually the Brown and yellow we obtain first the GREEN eyes......and then (more the yellow/brown is intense) a vast chromatic scale of dark green, Hazel Green, Hazel Brown, Light Brown.

    When the yellow pigment is absent and only the brown is present, Then the eye is purely brown ("pure dark" as C.Coon would state), From medium brown to Dark brown and Black. This last category is very rare in Europid populations.

    My eyes tend to change from very blue to very blue-gray (more leaning toward gray) quite frequently, so what's your theory for that :p

    An eye can't change colour. It's a problem of perception i think. I've sen your eyes and i'd say light Blue rather than Gray.

    Otherwise you could be an European hybrid (I.E. + Upper paleolithic Euro)...:p

    Actually its been recorded before that eyes can change their colours depending on the mood of the person being observed. I seem to remember an experiment once where a falcon was injected with adrenaline and its eye colour changed noticably almost immediately.
