Here are a few buttons called "Peacock Eyes". The design is said to duplicate the beautiful "eye" at the tip of a peacock feather. They are paperweight glass or design under glass buttons. The shimmering color is achieved by inclusion of colored foil. I believe the center of a peacock eye button should always be blue although the debate is on regaring this issue. Notice below there is one with a red/pink/white center which has a rose overlay design. It is unlikely this would be accepted as a peacock eye button. Comments?
