    I can't get into the technical things like light transmission and stuff like that, but to be honest Gold Iridium looks like poop and is non reflective. 24K poops on Gold Iridium and it's reflective like it's name, 24K.

    i have regular gold iridium on my Zero 0.4 (original version), they look pretty reflective.. nothing like the 24k but pretty sick nonetheless. did they change gold iridium like they did ruby though?

    here's my gold iridium and 24k..IMO,the gold iridium is more bright than the 24k when you wear them.

    the technical specs are probably on the website, but if based solely on personal opinion? 24ks are da bomb. for sure. =)

    In all honesty, these gold iridium lenses look a lot more gold than most of the gold iridium i have seen...

    could be, this lighting is really good and I usually only see them in Ostore lighting too, so that could also be a factor
