The Chinchilla Persian is a variety of the Persian cat, classified as a "silver" cat or Chinchilla Longhair. Chinchilla Longhair has a slightly longer nose than the Persian, resulting in healthy breathing and less eye tearing. Its hair is translucent with only the tips carrying black pigment, a feature that gets lost when out-crossed to other colored Persians. One of the distinctions of the Chinchilla Persian breed is the their blue-green or green eye color only, with kittens having blue or blue-purple eye color.

The Chinchilla undercoat should be pure white, the coat on the back, legs, flanks, head, ears and tail being tipped with black.  This tipping is evenly distributed, gives a sparkling appearance.  The face and legs may be very slightly shaded tipping, however, the chin, ear tufts, stomach and chest must be pure white. Ideally the hocks should be unblemished.  The eyes are large, round and outlined with black eyeliner, color emerald green or blue-green in color.  The nose leather - brick red, outlined with penciling of black.  The pads black.  

Chinchilla Persian personalities are generally very quiet, gentle and placid in nature, love to lie around the home more as a decorative ornament!  They are affectionate, enjoy attention and can be quite attached and loyal to their master
