    I have a set of Polished Ichiro and 2 sets of Emerald Slate Lenses!

    I was wondering wich sets is the rarest ? I installed 1 lens of both sets..

    The left lens seems to have a darker tint while the right one, the color changes from yellow to green ?

    Any suggestions.. I want to keep only 1 set in my collection

    Thanks!
    There are variations in hue for many Oakley lenses, purely dependent on batches. It appears that you have two sets which have a fairly great variance in the amount of iridium applied between one pair and the other.
    Some rubys have more red and some have more fire to them while Ichiro Blue lenses run from a deep blue/purple to a deep blue/green:
    Oakley Ichiro "OO BLUE" Vs Ichiro "BLUE Iridium"???
    Or... one is a counterfeit having the Ichiro signature etched on an emerald lens. So keep the pair matching the left (etched) lens in the first pics and don't mix up the left and rights lol!
