Compared to other related Middle Eastern minority groups, such as the Assyrians and the Mizrahim Jewish communities of Iraq and Iran. Mandaeans are on average quite swarthy and what I would describe as having phenotypes somewhere between an Iranian (Persian) and Arabian. Although there are a minority who are fair skinned and featured.

Some examples
