Green Glasses

To look through green glasses. To feel jealous of one; to be envious of another's success.

“If we had an average of theatrical talent, we had also our quantum of stage jealousies; for who looks through his green glasses more peevishly than an actor when his brother Thespian brings down the house with applause.” —C. Thomson: Autobiography, p. 197.
