So, having both of these things, I've got some of the rarest eyes in the world [Big Grin]

My father has the same kind of eyes - his eyes are bluish-green and each eye has a large spot of rich brown. It's very interesting - I wish I had inherited it [Frown]

Also jumping on the eye color changing bandwagon. My sons eyes are a gunmetal gray color and will change with whatever color he is wearing. They're gorgeous.

Never could resist a bandwagon.

My eyes were dark brown when I was younger are now generally called "hazel" (I don't even know what that means) but now they are more brown in the morning and distinctly green in the evenings.

I have changey eyes too. Some of my childhood photos my eyes are grey-green to steel blue, some dark blue-green, but a good majority of the time its green with a dark green rim. I haven't figured what changes them, except when i cry they can be pretty dark blue, or intensely green.

My husband and I both have dark brown eyes. Our oldest son has bottle green eyes, another son has very light brown eyes, and our daughter's eyes are black, with no distinction between the iris and pupil. Genetics, huh?

LOL! That's the term I've been using lately for my eyes (while getting weird looks from the BF). Throughout my life, I've gone from blue to steel grey to hazel to aqua, before they finally settled to a green hue. But even so, the shade of green lightens and darkens constantly, with a hint of blue or grey thrown in every now and then.

Frog Feathers-- I absolutely LOVE your eye color. If I were you I would accentuate it every chance I got! My eyes are odd, they don't change color but the are two different colors. The top half is brown, the bottom half is green. Very distinctly different. I freaked out my eye doctor when I went he was looking close up with the light then he would pull back then he would go in close again then go back out again and I asked if something was wrong (he was kinda freakin' me out) and he said, " do you know your eyes are two colors?!?!" I said why yes I do and he said he had never seen anything like that before, top brown, bottom green. I felt *special*, not short yellow bus *special* but special none the less.

I have plain blue eyes, nothing special. DH has these fabulos light brown eyes that remind me of the picture of Davy on the cover of "Tiger Eyes". Child has these hazel eyes that has a small spot of chocolate brown on the left eye. My sister's kids have interesting eyes. My nephews eyes have not changed since he was born. They are this really cool steel color. My niece's eyes can be just about any color she wants. When she wears blue they are blue and green when she wears green. When she wears white, black, or grey they are grey, and when she wears violet or pink they look violet. The only color she can't make her eyes look is brown.

I have one green eye and one light brown eye. No one hardly ever notices until they get close to my face.

When I'm happy my eyes are blue, when I'm mad they are blue. When I wear red they are blue and when I were green you guessed it blue. Man I got boring eyes.

Right now, my eyes are blue with a bit of green around the pupil and gray around the rim. Whenever I've cried, they turn ice blue, and whenever I'm angry they're bright green. Normally they're very light.

edited to get back on topic...I always thought Liz Taylor had very blue eyes.

I cannot give you a date but last year in the science section of the NY Times, they had a bit about whether peoples eyes could really change hues from emotion or clothing choices...and they found that in a few cases it was true.

My eyes are kind of bluey-greeney, but when I'm outside on a rainy day I often have people tell me they look grey. Also if I wear blue or green eyeshadow it makes my eyes look more of the other color (blue eyeshadow makes them look green, green makes them look blue). My mom is the same way.
That's my eye color(s) as well. Most of the pic cropped out because, well, my face was painted like a tiger.

I knew a girl who had one blue eye and one green eye. They were strikingly gorgeous.

When I see Elizabeth Taylor, I ususally think her eyes look green. I'll have to watch National Velvet again and pay more attention to her eye color.

Growing up, I knew a woman who had two different color eyes. I remember one was blue, I'm not sure about the other one. I thought it was cool, but she apparently didn't, becuase she she started wearing colored contact lenses as soon as they became commercially available.
