Mainly people that surround us all have familiar eye colors, such as gray, hazel, blue, etc. There are other more rare natural colors of eyes, which are not caused by mutations – like green eyes. Only 2% of people have this eye color, even less have amber color or completely black eyes. Bu others in order to emphasize their individuality use lenses of different colors, so one can be easily deceived.
But even more rarely there are people who don’t need to use lenses because their eyes already have naturally unique color – purple. Purple eyes – the main feature of mutation called Alexandrias Genesis. In addition, people with this genetic disease have strongly developed muscles, fat fingers and a thick layer of subcutaneous fat. Many virtually have no body hair, and women don’t have a menstrual cycle, but they are still quite capable of procreation.
The number of owners of purple eyes on earth is very small. When in 1329 the child was born with this unusual color of eyes his parents asked the priest for help, having decided that this was the influence of a devil. But a church minister assured them that their child is not the devil, but simply belongs to a special category of people with rare color of eyes. It is believed that this pathology is passed through the lineage of mother and can be transmitted from generation to generation. People with Alexandrias Genesis are attributed to a longer life (up to 150 years), strong immunity and lack of opportunity to sunbathe, because of the extremely pale skin.
When a person with a genetic disease is born the color of their eyes is normal at first. But after six to ten months their eyes turn purple. Such people have most common eye color in the very beginning like gray or blue, but after about 6 months, the color begins to change towards purple hue and in about a year such babies have fully colored purple eyes. The color then becomes darker, more saturated, mostly during puberty. This is due to the appearance of a double row of genes. Fortunately, this mutation does not affect the sight of the person. But it is quite possible that the owner of purple eyes could have problems with heart. For example, such famous actress as Elizabeth Taylor also had a pair of wonderful purple eyes, leading to the delight of her admirers. But throughout all of her life she had problems with her heart of which she eventually died.
There is an old legend about the origin of Alexandrias Genesis. Several centuries ago the inhabitants of a small Egyptian settlement saw a bright flash of unknown origin in the sky. Shortly thereafter, in the village children with incredibly beautiful purple eyes were born. One of the first newborns was a girl by the name of Alexandria. Six months after the birth her eye color turned from blue into purple. And much later, when she gave birth to four daughters, it turned out that each of them also had purple eyes. In honor of the first girl the doctors called this phenomenon Alexandrias Genesis.
