    take some clear pictures of the edges will help.. was your polished juliet serialised JB XXXX? it could be the rare polished juliet with BLUE iridium which means it will have the green and purple hues and YES you just scored BIG.

    no unfortunately it's not..:sad: the serial is JP005647..i believe this is a custom piece..it came with the blue rubbers..those pics are the best i my phone can do in terms of capturing the purple hue i believe..i didn't notice any green in them..just purple..what do you think brip?btw thanks for the quick reply!

    edit: now that u've mentioned it, they do look a lil green at the center..so it's blue ird then?

    That's Blue Iridium...Before they became "OO Blue" in the Ichiro...Killer lenses and hard to find these days. By far not Ice...

    yeah if the thickness is the same as OEm, and you can see those different hues its most likely blue iridium. its hard to capture the hues in photos right? haha.. blue iridium is awesome. congrats.
