Category:Violet eyes[edit]

For me, all images on this categories show *blue* instead of *violet* eyes. So I would move all images to Category:Blue eyes and delete this category. Torsch (talk) 16:10, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Actual violet eyes are extremely rare and caused by partial albinism. In fact you will have difficulty finding any pictures of them. Deep blue eyes can look violet in a certain light, and that is what's in this category. But they are still blue. The categorization aid chart shows "Violet" as a pink colour, which I think would be more accurately called pink or red eyes, ie the eyes of people with no pigment in their eyes whatsoever, so the only colour is provided by blood vessels. These are less rare, but it's still a pretty rare thing. So
  • Move these images to Category:Blue eyes.
  • Change the colour chart so it's more consistent.
I'd say the the term itself is too inconsistent in meaning to have its own category. --moogsi·(blah) 19:46, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Deleted, empty after moving blue eyes to the correct category. --rimshottalk 20:27, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
