The coral has developed a very wide encrusting base with numerous small short branches arising from the encrustation. Polyps located on the encrusting base are green colored, while polyps along the vertical branches are white colored. The coral has a very nice solid purple coloration that rivals the Bali Tricolor and the Purple monster Limited Edition corals. The purple color of the Purple Unknown is a lighter shade.
