The Limb of the Sun has an absolutely amazing and unique pigmentation pattern for a brain-type of stony coral. The prominent ridges in between the corallites are colored a solid red. Very unique for this type of brain. These ridges also have distinctive grooves that are perpendicular to the ridge. The corallite centers are a solid bright violet blue. This combination of pigments is very unique.
