All my life I've been dissatisfied with the color of my eyes. Blue was okay, but I thought mine a dull, dark, greyish color. Perhaps they are hard to appreciate from a distance, but I have changed my mind on the color. I have never seen anyone else with this shade, sort of a badly flawed sapphire with a rim of navy blue. Since this can only be seen from a distance of about two inches, I really have no idea how common it might be. It's only that at last--I like it.
