Possibly I should have said brown-to-dark-brown. Although I didn't mean black is the most common, brown is, just that it's more in the spectrum of common eye color.

So they're sort of common, but not the most among the brown eye spectrum?

I hate mine. No one ever tells you that your "black" eyes are beautiful, they just say "oh...that's different". But whatever...

Black eyes are beautiful (a lot of people would also describe them as intense), but yes it does sometimes throw people off.

I think they can be very soulful and beautiful.

Some people have heterochromia, where one eye is a different color than the other. The main person I've noticed this in is actress Jane Seymour. Dan Aykroyd and Christopher Walken are also said to have it. I think I noticed it in Seymour more because the colors are pretty distinct, I think it says one eye is green and the other hazel.

Isn't Michelle Pfeiffer like that too?

I think black eyes are intriguing but the way people talk about them, it's like they're disgusted by them or something. I've had people look at a friend with blue or green eyes and say "wow your eyes are so beautiful," and then they look at me and say "oh my lord, your eyes are so black!" They just look at them for awhile and then go about their business not saying a word.

Kate Bosworth (Lois Lane in the lastest Superman) also has 2 different color eyes. Hers are pretty distinct.

my eyes are greenish, with a light blue/greyish tint that you can see depending on the lighting...i also have darker green rings on the outside edges of my irises, and golden rings surrounding the edges of my pupils.

I usually just say my eyes are hazel, or I say they're green.
