    Is there a difference on those two lenses? Is the 24k Iridium more "blingy" than the Gold one. Checked oakley.com and the gold looks more like brown/tungsten iridium. Can anybody post pics side by side? Much appreciated. I actually have a 24k lenses for my xmetal xx but haven't seen Gold iridium in real life.

    Yes, there's a difference. Gold iridium is a darker lens. There's a good amount of variation in the brilliance of the gold, but for the most part I believe it's basically a Bronze lens with iridium, similar to how a Black Iridium is just a grey lens with iridium.

    The 24k is a lot brighter in appearance with a more even coloring and a little more yellow in the color. This also causes the "base" tint to fall somewhere between the green-looking Fire and the brown-looking Gold.

    Thanks for the pics. Very, very helpful.

    Thanks guys, lol idk why oakley calls it gold if it looks like brown. Color seems very identical to my Tungsten iridium polar on my jupiter squared.

    Out of all 3 of those lens colors I like the 24K lens.

    Hi everyone!
    Is it a 24k iridium lens or another one?
