    Sorry my pictures suck...all I can tell you is that the only real difference is that the polished has more of a shine to it.

    Carbon is the Ruby and the Polished Carbon is the Polished Black Iridium...

    Thanks for those pics, I could never figure out the difference. Does one wear better than the other for scuffs? Do you prefer a finish to the other?

    The frames with the ruby lenses almost looks like a matte finish.

    What he said...regular carbon is similiar to matte and polished is shinier and more reflective..

    Thank you for posting the pictures sir.

    I went ahead and ordered the polished carbon/black iridium polarized and extra ruby iridium lens.
