    What causes iridescent colors on meats? Meat contains iron, fat, and other compounds. When light hits a slice of meat, it splits into colors like a rainbow. There are various pigments in meat compounds that can give it an iridescent or greenish cast when exposed to heat and processing. Interesting. http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Factsheets/Color_of_Meat_&_Poultry/index.asp

    Iridescent Meat Many optical effects come from distorting light. When waves of light are bent or reflected through some material or scatter off a surface, they can interfere with one another. The trough of one light wave cancels out the peak of another, or two peaks coincide, creating a brighter spot. With many wavelengths interacting, these effects can give rise to strange phenomena.
