Compare that to other eye colours. For example, some 79 per cent of the population has brown eyes, while 8 per cent has blue. About 5 per cent of people have hazel eyes and another 5 per cent have amber eyes. Simply put, green eyes are incredibly unique. (Unique enough, in fact, to give Chris Martin the inspiration that would make Coldplay an overnight success).

To get green eyes, the irises need a unique blend of “light brown pigmentation, yellowish lipochrome pigment, and a splash of Rayleigh scattering,” according to Eyesite Opticians. And interestingly enough, it can take up to three years for green eyes to appear in small children, as the Rayleigh scattering takes time to form and appear in humans.

Despite green eyes being such a rarity, numerous characters in literature and film have them, perhaps to convey a sense of mystery. In fact, many researchers believe that eye colour is a true indicator of personality. For example, researchers from the University of Queensland and the University of New South Wales found that they tended to be less agreeable, more competitive, creative, devious, and shy.

So there you have it. If eyes truly are the windows of the soul, that means that people with green eyes possess the rarest souls on the planet.
