Default What Colour is my New Syrian?

I need help identifying the colour of my newest syrian, Popcorn. She originates from a pet store and is approximately 6 weeks old at the moment. Sorry the photos aren’t the best she doesn't wake up until late and she is still settling in

I usually use Midland and Southern hamster club resources to work out the colours of my syrians. However the link is broken. So using other resources I think she possible could be a Smoke Pearl. But this is just my guess based on my limited knowledge on syrian colours and the resources I have available to me.

She has yellow patches in her band - so this would make her a tort. Plus she has heterochromia - one black and one red eye.

Any help would be much appreciated.

She does look to be a tortoiseshell and white. She can't be a smoke pearl tort though as smoke pearl is the yellow patches in a dark grey tort.
She must be either a dark grey tort or a silver grey tort.
If she is carrying something like cinnamon she may also have a more orangy colour cast to the coat.
It is hard to tell from pics though and also she still has a baby coat which will change to the adult colour around 10-12 weeks or even later.

Thank you for your reply. I will get a photo of her when she a bit older and a better quality photo.

Silver grey tort is what I initially thought she was but I ruled it out as she didnít have the black cheek flashes. However as she a pet store syrian she probably has a mix of little bit of everything in her.

As Popcorn is around 10 weeks unsure if these photo will help with determining her colour better.

These are photo from my camera are more true to life representation of her colour than my phone photo. Was taken with artificial light so in the first photo her red eye looks more brighter than normal (like the 2nd and 3rd photo)
