    Ok , so weeks ago i ordered the Ruby Iridium juliet lenses,and they we're delivered today.
    Am i right in thinking they look like fire iridium? ( or is it just my imagination )
    It does say on the Oakley box " Ruby "

    That's a common problem with recent Ruby, too much orange. People have been calling it "Fruby"...

    Biggest difference between ruby and fire for a while now has been what they are like to look through rather than at. Your rubies should be grey/blue neutral rather than the greenish contrast tinge of fire.

    Correct. I have ruby and fire that you would struggle to tell apart from in front :/ And another pair of ruby that are looking gloriously red this evening... There's a bit of pot luck in how the colours come out.

    Top right are x-metal/ruby, middle left are plasma/ruby and middle right are polished/fire. The rubies in the x-metal are disappointingly close to fire. Might swap them for the redder lenses in the plasma actually...
