Question: What was the first ever eye color?

A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today. Originally, we all had brown eyes, said Professor Hans Eiberg from the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.

When did blue eyes evolve?

7000 years ago More importantly, there is evidence that blue eyes evolved before light skin — at least 7000 years ago. In 2014, Sturm and colleagues reported on ancient DNA from a 7000-year-old tooth belonging to a hunter gatherer dubbed La Brana 1, unearthed from the north-west of Spain.
