    I think these lenses were used for a display at some point and I held on to them. These are normal radar lenses and have been shot with a bb gun. My question is, what color are these lenses? It is like a gold that turns into green then a bit of purple. I love the color and want to get a non shot up version.

    Yeah at first I thought they were emerald, but I scoured the web and couldn't find any evidence of them ever making emerald.

    I'm 99.99% sure they are OEM because I got them directly from a sunglass hut and remember multiple sunglass huts having them on display. I guess to show the durability.

    But hopefully they are gold iridium, I need to see one in person.

    Gold Iridium looks like the closest match. The examples I've seen via google look more transparent though.

    I also did think they might be fake, but it might just be the way the picture is taken that slightly distorts the colour/gives off a lot of glare.

    Pretty sure they are gold iridium, I saw a pair on paths in the vault here in Portsmouth in the UK just last week with the gold iridium lenses in.

    My gold Radar lenses were quite uniform. Might be a bad +Red. What's the base color?

    Those are fake.

    EDIT - was in response to lafountain's (now deleted) post, not a comment to the OP.

    Oh, in that case, disregard my post.
