White agates

My recessive white agates split opal appear dark in their melanines. Melanins in agates used to be lighter. Have the standards for agates changed?

The standards with regard to melanin colour have not changed Len,but the quality of birds being bred has increased. The requirement for the eumelanin has always been black.
