An absolutely stunning Acropora. Branches develop a bright turquoise blue that can vary visually from greenish turquoise to bluish turquoise. Turquoise color runs half way up the corallite walls. Corallites are edged with a violet purple to violet blue pigment. Polyps themselves are striking and have a complex pigment structure. Tentacles are brown with blue white tips. The base of tentacles develop red pigments while the center of the polyp is a light golden cream color. That creates a visible contrast between tentacles and polyp center. Some polyps develop an elongated tentacle that has a blue end. Occasionally a bright golden color can develop in tentacles and corallite walls.
