    I think more than anything, any iridium lens that has been in production for a long time has had some changes in its evolution. But a lot of it has to do with the production process - how long they're in the iridium chamber for (and we're talking differences of seconds) could change the color slightly. Whenever I buy lenses from a store, I ask them to take out everyone they have in stock so I can see. There are often multiple little differences between sets. Ruby is the most drastic, but fire, +red and emerald can be. If you're not etching the lens, I'd buy the custom pair in a store so you can pick the emerald you want!

    Ah,I would do the same thing,but Im ordering online,thats why Im skeptic.I want colour as much more as possible as one on the custom page with true green and purplish.
    Here is the thread that contains pictures of what emerald shade I dont want
    I hope Razerwire wont mind using his thread and other posters that posted pictures wont be offended by this.
    Here is the tread

    Is there any chance to avoid that shade,with custom antix?

    There's no way to avoid anything if you're ordering online..
