I don’t know how it came up today, but I was thinking about how eyes get described in romance novels. They’re seldom plain blue or grey. They’re azure, or cornflower or stone or pewter. So my brain went off on a tangent (as it often does), and I googled eye colors. Not much, other than articles on genetics, like this one from Discover. But then I hit Images, and there they were. So I collected some example photos of unusual eye colors and hereby present them for your perusal. Yep, there really are people with eyes the color of a tropical lagoon, old terracotta, or a cadet’s jacket.
