    Iridium is a meta ( a rare one ) in the earth but exist in smal proprtions but in meteorites is more common what they mean by iridum ?

    Iridium is veri resisten to high temperatures and is one of the most dense materials
    But I dont see how apply to Sunglasess

    The Xmetal Frames are made of iridium ?

    It's the lens coat. Gives a mirror effect where most times other people can't see ur eyes

    Yeah it's just a marketing term. Like o-matter, unobtainium, and plutonite. And x-metal...

    But it's the mirror coating, probably inspired by the word "iridescence" instead of the element iridium. I'm guessing.

    Superheated metal oxide coating. Just a coating and is bonded to the lense but heat. Not a film like others.
