This Favia originally had an incredible pigmentation pattern that can be seen in the above image. The center of the corals large irregular sized corallites were colored with a cream pink pigmentation. Outside of this cream color a gradient of pigments occurred to a darker red color. The coralite ridges were pigmented reddish brown. The leading growth edge of the coral also developed a bright green rim pigmentation. We currently believe that this is the pigments the coral develops under moderate to strong light levels.
