    I just bought a pair of ice polarized 04-153 juliets from an oakley vault ( I just had too)... I already owned a pair that i have on display, but when i campared the two... the lenses from the pair i just bought have a more purplish tint to them than my other ones. Both are in Brand New condition. Whats the deal? I noticed these on the original xmetal rubys also have this... they have a more darkish violet tint than the replacement ruby lenses sold at the Oakley store. Anyone else notice this or why that is?

    I was told by vault employee it just depends on the cutting of the sheet of lens. I have a set of emerald lens looking like emerald slate Ichiro.

    If I am not mistaken.

    Lens batches will always have slight color variations to them.

    But my Ice Polarized lenses are the same. A lot of purple to go with the blue. I actually really like it.
