With the Silver Chinchilla persian there is a dominant gene inhibiting the production of color at the base of the hair shaft leaving a faint silver color at the tip.  The Silver Chinchilla Persian kittens have either turquoise, blue-green, green or emerald green eyes.  The eyes are outlined in black.  Additionally, the nose and mouth are outlined in black.  The cat paw pads are black.   
















The Shaded Silver Persian comes in different degrees of shaded silver tipping and even black tipping across their backs.   The undercoat is white and absolutely gorgeous when the coat is long and folds down on the sides showing all the shaded accents with the white undercoat.    Instead of lightening up necessarily, the Shaded Silver Persian often can get darker until maturity.   Not always, as each Persian cat is an individual which makes it interesting to watch them change.
