    Yes, the lens is called Black Black, it is extremely mirrored, like Chrome Iridium.

    There are 27 items listed here, of which I own 17, those being:

    Crosshair - VR50 Black Gradient
    Gascan - Pol White - Black Black
    Gascan S - Pol Black - G30 Gold
    Grapevine - Pol Black - Red Gradient
    Half Jacket XLJ - Pol Red - Black Transitions
    - Pol Red - Emerald Fire
    Minute (Gen 3) - Matte Black - Light Blue Titanium
    M Frame (Gen 2) - Gold X - Titanium Black (Heater)
    M Frame - Bright Chrome - VR50 Titanium (Sweep)
    - 5.56 - VR50 Titanium (Hybrid S)
    - VR50 Titanium Heater - (lens only, L06-503)
    Monster Dog - Metallic Black - Ruby On Bronze
    - Grey - VR70
    Racing Jacket - Sulphur Yellow/Orange - Ruby to G30 Photochromic (due in within days)
    Riddle - Polished White - Pink Titanium Clear
    Twenty - Emerald - Light Blue Titanium
    - Jet Black - Negative Red

    These were obtained from different sources, Huney Monkey, Oakley employees, and the VR70 from an ebay seller. Most came from Huney Monkey some years ago and much of his stock would send an electric charge through you. It is such a shame he stopped, he offered great service and had products only he had. I could have had some of the others but at that time thought there would be no reason to go for the same lens twice but with a different frame, eg I avoided the Black Gascan, the C/F Minute, and really wanted only 1 Grapevine to capture the lens and Pol Black was the obvious choice. I am amazed these were not that expensive at the time and since Jason (H/M) finished I can't remember seeing any of the ones he had in stock offered again. For me personally, unreleased lenses are about as interesting as it gets, we are not just talking about a frame/lens combination made for an athlete that they got 5 of, but the colours are out there in abundance, we are talking lenses made that were never released....think of a Beatles song on an acetate that was never on one of their records, that's how I see these sacred glasses.

    You really need a camera, or a cell phone with a camera!
