Blue eyes came into existence with one individual mutation approximately 6,000 years ago. This special person lived in the Mediterranean or Black Sea Region. Some speculate the modern Near East but evidence points to an Indo-European background so many experts agree that the European Mediterranean or European Black Sea is most likely.
Blue eyes are considered a light eye color. They could be different shades of blue from a very pale, transulsent shade to a deep, rich blue. Some blue eyes appear to shift in color from blue to green to gray. If your eyes tend to do this, look at them in the direct sunlight to show your true eye color.
Blue eyes are most common in Northern and Central Europe with many occurances in Southern Europe and European colonies such as America, Canada and Australia. However, they could be naturally found in the following places: Middle East; North Africa; and Central, West, South and East Asia.
Some Swedes, Norwegians and Finns have Mongol admixture but remarkable blue eyes. This is evident in their features showing their Asian ancestry while their blue-eyed blond coloring resembles the European admixture. Finns - Swedes - the blondest people in the world with the highest Asian DNA of any European area. However, even though blue eyes are found naturally in populations other than European, it's unlikely that Swedes, Norwegians or Finns obtained the blue-eyed gene from anywhere other than Europe.
Sub-saharan Africans and other Asians can have blue eyes as well. However, it's due to Caucasian (European but not necessarily) admixture from both sides of the subject's ancestry for this to occur.
It's important to note that blue eyes are the minority in the world and are drasically continuing to decrease in numbers. It's important to preserve them as it's important to preserve all traits of every race and sub-culture.
