Like most of the world, I have brown eyes. But as I remember various people I've known in my life, I am struck by how apparently rare this woman's eye color was, to the extent that I've never met, or even seen, anyone else who has had it. And as this was over 58 years ago, I believe it was well before the advent of colored contacts. She was my teacher, and then a very attractive, petite 23 year old. (Yes, all of we teenaged boys behaved exactly like teenage boys in regard to her good looks.) Viewed casually, her eyes appeared to be a very light blue. And as she was young and seemingly healthy, they were clear and bright. But if you regarded her more carefully, you noted they were somehow different. And what was different was their color. Rather than the pale light blue they first seemed, they were actually a pale, delicate shade of lilac. And this was not the product of blood shot eyes, as the whites were always clear of any redness. My investigation has shown that there are people with purple eyes, and fewer even with violet or lilac, but I am unable to find any image of someone with the pale, delicate shade of lilac that this woman possessed. Her coloring otherwise was moderately fair skin, and medium dark brown hair. And, no, she was neither an albino or alien! Has anyone else encountered this eye color? Or otherwise have any insight into it's rarity and in what population it may occur?
