Hello,

Those terms are usued interchangeably by Ray-Ban and they all refer to the same tint, smoke green.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything else. 8)

Anytime Ray-Ban uses the term Crystal Green as a lens option, they are referencing the G-15 XLT lenses. If your Wayfarers state Crystal Green you will get the XLT!

Thanks for the post!


I have been looking at the Ray-Ban Balorama and am wanting them with polarized crystal lenses. On their site it shows that there is a G15 XLT and a Crystal Green. So i'm confused whether or not they are the same. The crystal green show to be about $50 more than the G15 XLT on their site.

Either way..if you offer the Balorama with a crystal polarized lens I am looking to buy immediately, so id appreciate a reply. Thank you!

Hello,

Ray-Ban is only offering one optioon in the Ray-Ban Balorama Sunglasses RB4089 (RB-SG-RB4089-601-58-6219). This is the crystal green polarized lens. You will be getting the xlt glass green lenses with polarization. The only difference on their site is that the lenses come polarized and non-polarized, both are still glass.

I hope that helps.

Hi I just order rb2132 901.. Now i dint know they had crystal green lenses... Do they come in black lenses too? all the pictures and videos i see of this specific model give the impression that the lenses are in fact black,can you clear that? Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for the post. Just to clarify the black lens is gray. The Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2132 offeres only the Crystal (glass) Gray Gradient lens in the RB-SG-RB2132-811-32-5218 and RB-SG-RB2132-811-32-5518. Same frame in 52mm and 55mm. The RB2132-901 is actually made with the Crystal (glass) Green G15 lens. In certain photograghs it can appear to be gray but it is truly green.

I hope that helps.

Hello,

I'm looking for new wayfarers with black frames and black (gray) lenses, but only seem to find them in green lenses or gradient...

Thanks for the post. The closest you could do is:

Lens Diameter: 55 mm
Lens Shape: Square
Lens Color: Gradient Grey and Polarized
Frame Color: Top Blue On Trasparent
Code: RB2132-6053M3-55

Unless you customize the RB2132!
