All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black Sea. What many people DO NOT KNOW is that Europe was colonised by AFRICANS about 10K + years ago. Therefore, the chance of any African child being born with blue eyes has been spread throughout the continent since then as a recessive gene. "...the more you know."

Alexandria’s Genesis, a.k.a violet eyes (a genetic mutation).When someone is born with Alexandria’s Genesis, their eyes are blue or gray at birth. After six months, the eyes begin to change from their original color to purple, and this process lasts six months. During puberty, the color deepens to dark purple, a deep purple, a royal purple, or a violet-blue color and remains that way. It does not affect the person’s eyesight.Those who have this mutation will never grow any

These twin girls have baby siblings who also chose a genetically different path. Odds of this happening once is one in a million. This happened TWICE in their family!
Okay, there's no way to imitate these beautiful eyes in steel. Sometimes there's NO WAY that art can imitate life. Aren't they amazing? What a beautiful girl. Why does this remind me of the photo of the Afghan girl on the cover of National Geographic. Same haunting beauty, I guess.
