    Hi, just new to this forum and to collecting in general so apologies if this is a silly question...
    Just bought myself a pair of the Ferrari Tinman Carbons with the ruby iridium lenses. I was expecting the lenses to be red/orange/gold like the pictures on the website but these ones have a big almost neon pink or purple section when you look right at them.
    My question is do all ruby lenses have pink in them or are mine rarer? I much prefer the deep red and gold look to the pink so wondering if I sent them back I might get a different shade on another pair?
    Thanks!

    Hi, anyway there are no silly questions here, that´s what this Forum should be. A place to help each others.
    A picture is very helpful indeed but what I can say as I own as well the Ferrari Tincan Carbon that the lenses are red/orange/yellow/gold mix.
    I do not have any pink in any section.
    My opinion is that any Ruby lens is unique in the colorways but the basic should be red/orange/yellow/gold.

    That ruby lens seems ok, , better that than having too much yellow that it is almost a fire lens than ruby imho.

    I dont see pink/purple on my one pair of ruby lenses. I see that mix of red/yellow/gold as LinusOBerlin pointed out. Here is a pic of mine. Ruby Iridium Lens Colour Question - 090.JPG Ruby Iridium Lens Colour Question - 089.JPG
