    They are similar to persimmon but, at least for me, they're slightly on the rosier side and seems to block slightly more light. It's my favorite lens to run in on cloudy days (I even prefer it over the persimmon). Takes some getting used to though because the tint is pretty "rosy."

    It looks like G30 with Blue Iridium.

    ahh good thing I asked. I am ok with persimmon and warmer tones I just don't think I'd like pinkish.

    Persimmon isn't mirrored but Blue Iridium is.

    Blue Iridium is basically a persimmon lens base with a darker Blue Iridium coating. It's darker than G30 but lighter than Ice.

    It's not a heavy Iridium coating but it is mirrored. Kind of like G30 where you can see the wearer's eyes. Here's a picture of a member wearing Blue Iridium.

    Also just an FYI, if the lens color has "Iridium" in it then the lens is mirrored.

    Yeah blue iridium is definitely mirrored but as Batwolf pointed out, you can still see the wearer's eyes pretty easily.
