Why are my eyes Green or Brown?

Just like the shape of your nose and the color of your hair, your eye color is determined by the genes you inherit from your parents. Those genes determine how much melanin – a colored chemical matter – you have in each iris, which is the colorful part of our eye. The more melanin you have, the darker your eyes. Less melanin makes for lighter eyes, which is why fair – skinned people often have light blue or gray eyes.

Brown is the most common eye color. Individuals with brown eyes have more melanin present, and over half of the people in the world have brown eyes. People who don this hue are said to be very independent, self-confident and determined. You are known to be trustworthy, and when people look at you they get a sense of security and stability.

Green is the least common eye color, but it is found most frequently in northern and central Europe. People with green eyes are curious about nature, very passionate in their relationships with other people and have an overall positive and creative outlook on life. These people tend to get jealous easily, but possess large amounts of love.
