I would say that this question involves an appearance standard -- which is a matter of whether the piece falls within or outside of the aesthetic range of standard samples agreed upon -- rather than compliance with a specification. The rainbow is probably a diffraction pattern due to the thickness of the conversion layer, rather than an actual discoloration. Contrary opinions welcome.
