    Too difficult to tell: with Oakley's Frubys looking so non-descript!

    The base tint is basically the inside color of your lens. They also yield a different color when viewing through the lens.

    any ideas on what i could expect to see when looking through a ruby as opposed to a fire?

    In a bright environment, if you angle the lens while looking from the back of the lens you should be able to see either a blue hue or a brown hue.

    Oakleyonthespot is a member here and an active lens cutter. I would take her word for it. You have nothing to worry about.

    Thanks oakley can. I'll look when I get back home. I guess this is more common issue than I thought. I'll post what I find but pretty sure they will be rubys.
